Many young individuals around the world are curious about learning about climate change which can be solved many different ways. As COVID-19 has us confined in our homes, the abilities to learn more about our world broadens
1. Research or learn online
In the modern world, we are lucky to have technology around the world and one of the solutions is to learn online. As we step further into COVID-19, using our computers and devices to research more about climate change and how extreme weather and conditions are affecting not just developing countries’ economy and living situations, but their children’s educations.
Taking part in an online class whether for free or through your school stretches the amount of knowledge you can gain. Discovering the different situations around the world through websites, the news, articles, and consulting one another on the topics of climate change.
2. Physical paper and communication
While we sit at home, we may have resources online to help our day to day learning, however, it is important to take breaks from using technology, so, here are some great recommendations of learning about the world and education and climate change all through paper. Energy and Civilization: A History by Vaclav Smil is a terrific book to read about the history of energy, politics, the environment, etc.
Reading is a big aspect to learning, however, communicating with another, perhaps your family member, helps with developing your climate change knowledge. Whether it is talking to an adult or another of similar age, talking about climate change can benefit growth in what you think about of the world and how you can apply your future actions into these discoveries.
I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below or by email! Please feel no restraint to be able to read freely and comment freely. Climate change is a tough topic to discuss but by being educated in it and to slowly learn about it, we can understand what Mother Earth is going through.
