A new show about climate change. Made by children, for grown-ups.

This new show will give you inspiring perspectives on one of the biggest challenges of our time – climate change. It’s all about what children think about climate change – their hopes, fears and ideas for the future.

Free six part series starts 12 May 2021. All episodes will be available to watch on our YouTube channel.

“This way of working seemed to have a lasting impact on the pupils’ knowledge of climate science and engineering”

To make this show we’ve worked with children from across the North of England as well as scientists and engineers at Newcastle University.
