Pupil resource

    What's it all about?

    Register for free and download this activity to share with your pupils wherever they are learning.

    Your pupils will find out all about the International Day of Peace and what its aims are, as well as how peace is affected by climate change, what the UN is doing about it and how young people like themselves can get involved.

    • Hold a debate about schools strikes, like the one led by Greta Thunberg recently. Do pupils think any issue is worth missing education for? Or are young people in the best position to demonstrate against climate change, given they will inherit this earth from current generations?
    • Write a five-point instructional plan urging world leaders to make climate change an essential issue
    • Create clever slogans to go on protest signs
    • Look into a recent event where extreme weather meant people had to leave their homes, and write a summary of it
