Normalise talking about climate change

Introducing climate change at an early age makes it a normal topic to talk about rather than a source of anxiety.

Set the foundation for green career skillsets

Climate education from early years gives children the foundational knowledge needed to pursue green careers and take climate action.

Ensure climate justice

The youngest children will be the most impacted by climate change despite having contributed the least to it. They need to be prepared to face the climate challenges ahead.

Instill confidence

By getting appropriate knowledge, they can understand that individual actions can make a difference.

Why is climate education for young children important?

Human inertia is the biggest threat to climate action. Climate education is key to give the next generation hope and empower them to take climate action

Build lifelong climate positive habits

90% of a child’s brain develops before they turn 5. Climate and sustainability education at a young age, ensures sustainable behavior comes as naturally to them, as brushing their teeth.

Reduce future carbon emissions

Educating just 16% of children in the developed world could have the same impact as removing 504 million cars off the road, which is approximately 1/3rd of all the cars in the world.

Our Journey

Earth Warriors was born from the belief that all children have the right to a quality and inclusive climate education.

Our founder Shweta has over 12 years of experience working on education and sustainability policy globally.

A gap was identified in the climate education space for 3-11-year-olds, a key age to build lifelong sustainable habits which led to the creation of Earth Warriors.

In the last 3 years Earth Warriors has reached over 25,000 students and 5000 teachers across 5 countries through its curriculum and teacher training.

Earth Warrior is on a mission to give 2 billion children globally, access to high-quality, comprehensive climate education.

The high quality of the curriculum is one of the features of Earth Warriors that sets us apart from the rest. When the gaps in teachers’ knowledge and confidence are as big as they are, and the time is not on our side with childrens’ rising anxiety and the decline of the planet’s health, societies must invest in the highest quality and readily implementable climate education product available to them.

Earth Warriors with National Geographic

Earth Warriors is delighted to share our short animation made in partnership with The National Geographic Society. We co-created this resource for teachers during lockdown to shine a light on the importance of teaching quality climate education in an age-appropriate way, critical for 3-7-year-olds to keep their eco-anxiety in check.

This platform reminds us that everyone can do something, whatever our means, time, or expertise, we can all get involved and make a contribution to Green Citizens somewhere in the world or close to home.

In 2022 we released our  Global Learning Standards on Climate Change for 3-7 year olds – developed byus in collaboration with Professors Dana Charles McCoy and Michael Mastrandrea from Harvard and Stanford University respectively.
