Climate Change

Climate change is having a hugely detrimental impact on people in the developing world...who contribute least to it.  These videos give examples of the impact of climate change on poor communities and how Practical Action is helping them adapt to it in a variety of ways.

Many of our STEM challenges for KS2-4 ( ages 7-16 ) such as the Floating Garden Challenge and Beat the Flood enable students to design and build a model of their own solution to a specific problem caused by climate change.
