The Earth's global temperature is warming.

Many of the world's greatest challenges, from poverty to displacement, wildlife extinction to extreme weather events, are being intensified by climate change.

By learning more about the science and geography that affects our world, we want young people to embark on a personal journey with WWF to understand what needs to be done, to recognise what matters most to them, and to take action to help protect the places, animals and things they love.

Shaping our Future includes climate themed lessons which can be taught either as a standalone lesson or as a series of cross-curricular linked lessons to help young people understand what climate change is and what they can do to help tackle it.

This lesson plan will provide the opportunity for pupils to understand the UK’s commitments to tackling climate change, and recognise what will happen if we don’t meet our targets for reducing emissions.

This lesson plan will enable pupils to reflect on climate change learning and understanding from previous lessons, and present a positive vision of the future in a creative format.
