Climate change is happening. The facts and figures don’t lie. But statistics never gives you the full picture.
Because charts, graphs and tables can only explain it one way, we must find new ways of helping people to understand the situation.
And it’s worth understanding how climate change works and the ramifications of the problem. Watching the news is not enough.
Because it’s not too late, we need to see the change that’s happening now. Many believe that it’s worth understanding and sharing the information.
We can’t make things better if we can’t understand the problem. It’s difficult to have a goal, if we can’t see what the problem is like and what we’re trying to do.
Therefore, systemic change starts with education. When people understand the problem, it’s much easier to make positive changes.
Systemic change happens now
You can make systemic change by learning and helping other people to understand how climate change works. The Carbon Almanac is a collaborative movement that aims to do that.
It is a credible resource written by authors, bloggers, illustrators, and thinkers. And once you’ve learned it, you can teach other people how it works.
Although I am not affiliated with the carbon Almanac, I do like this movement and what it aims to achieve.
Being a protestor is not everyone’s cup of tea. Change starts with learning and understanding the problem.
You can download and share a free 60-page pdf copy of the guide for teachers, parents, and groups here. And you can even create your own content around this.
You can make an impact simply by understanding and then passing it on to someone else.
