“Don’t let young people fall asleep through ignorance. Tell them about the planet. Tell them about the situation in which we find ourselves and the impact it has on all of us, now and in the future”.
It is with these words that Youth for Climate calls on teachers to join the campaign for measures to combat climate change.
During the last school year Youth for Climate organised weekly demonstration on Thursdays in Brussels and many other towns and cities across Belgium.
"Education as a lever for change”
"We would like to continue our mobilisation through the use of wider channels of communication. We want to make everyone aware of the ecological dangers in which the planet finds itself”, the letter continues.
Youth for Climate believes that teachers have a crucial role to play. “Education is a powerful lever for change".
