A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

Prepare to Act

This resource is part of a toolkit for young climate activists designed by UNICEF. In this booklet you will find a series of tips from youth to youth who want to advocate and act for the climate. A great way to prepare yourself for climate action is to follow the advice of other adolescents and young people who already have experience in activism and climate advocacy.

A brilliant resource entirely focused on giving young people the skills and confidence to take part in and even organise climate action in a huge variety of ways! The guidance covers everything from how to prepare for interviews & how to be an active listener at events to how to effectively lobby for change and how to take care of your mental health while participating in climate action. The resources covers a really broad range of advice, and is peppered with quotes from young people on how taking action on climate issues has helped them feel purposeful and hopeful about the future!
