The planet that our children and grandchildren will inherit is in crisis. Dealing with this will be the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced. In a world where children are increasingly disconnected from nature, having these conversations with our younger citizens is not easy - but it is absolutely essential. Knowledge is power and the only way we can solve these issues is to understand them, feel empowered to tackle them and feel a responsibility for our planet. This is why Earthwatch Europe, supported by SC Johnson, has been working with London East Teacher Training Alliance (LETTA), engaging Trainee Teachers so that they have the tools, understanding and drive to pass these important lessons on to the children they teach in an empowering way.
