Why is Climate Change Literacy important?

Being climate change literate is important because:

  • You can understand better what is happening and why, which is half the way to take action to stop or slow down these changes and to a better future for the planet and its species.
  • You can learn about practical actions to take by yourself or with others in your community, leading you to make informed choices.
  • When you are aware of the interconnectedness of ecosystems and the fragility of the Earth’s natural resources, you are more likely to engage in conservation efforts, protect biodiversity, and promote sustainable land and resource management practices.
