Climate Ed
Climate Ed is an educational charity which teaches children about climate change and inspires them to take action on the issue. We operate across London and have worked with over 100 schools delivering assemblies and workshops about all aspects of climate change. We mainly work with primary schools, delivering high quality education about climate change as well as helping young people to take…

A chance for you to inspire children and their families to take action on climate change by reducing their carbon footprints and leading a more climate-friendly lifestyle. All resources and training provided.


You will go to a primary school in London to deliver a workshop programme about climate change/carbon footprints and inspire the children to start taking action on climate change! More specifically, this involves:

- Undertaking a short training to gain familiarity with the workshop materials (this can be done remotely).

- Delivery of a programme of workshops (five in total, each lasting one hour) during school hours.

- Supporting children with activities related to the workshop, like producing board displays in their school.

- Providing feedback to Climate Ed about the effectiveness of the programme.

- Conducting a follow-up evaluation with the workshop participants two months after the end of the programme to see how much CO2 they have saved.

We work with schools all across London and aim to place volunteers in schools as close to possible to where they live/study. 

Who will the volunteers be working with?
You will receive supervision and support from Climate Ed staff. Once in school you will also be working with the regular class teacher (who will always be there to supervise sessions).
You can come and observe a session in a school before signing up.
Then initial training to gain familiarity with the materials (done online).
Ongoing support as and when needed.

Time commitment

Volunteers initially sign up for six months, during which time they can deliver the whole programme twice.
