EVENTS







Thank you for joining our webinar on Climate Change & Early Childhood. This was just the beginning of what we hope can be a series of conversations and activities related to climate change and early learning and development.


We appreciate the time you dedicated to watching Tuesday’s conversation with Mary, Bill, Paul, Megan and Sarah. We chose to do a follow up survey instead of having a chat option to monitor during the webinar.


Thank you,

Mark Sustic

Future of Children | Four interrelated themes: 1. Climate change will fundamentally alter Earth’s climate system in many ways that threaten children’s physical and mental wellbeing; 2. Today’s children and future generations will bear a disproportionate share of the burden of climate change, which will affect child wellbeing through many direct, indirect, and societal pathways; 3. Children in developing countries and countries with weak institutions face the greatest risks; 4. The uncertainties associated with climate change and its mitigation—coupled with the fact that the costs of climate change mitigation policies need to be paid now, but the benefits will accrue in the future—make it difficult to enact appropriate policies.
