From extreme weather, wildfires, and melting ice caps, to temperature rise, young people are aware of the impacts of climate change. They know that burning fossil fuels has a direct impact on global warming. Knowing that natural disasters will become more intense and more frequent for future generations can leave your students feeling hopeless. But, learning how to write, edit, and effectively deliver a climate change persuasive speech that evokes emotion and compels individuals to take action can help students feel empowered.

SubjectToClimate is here to help with a variety of resources that will get students on their podiums and in the streets to spread the word about the dangers of burning fossil fuels and the value of renewable energy!
