Get your students and school involved
Talk to your students about joining you in these actions. Explain to them why each action can be so positive and powerful. Encourage them to talk to their families about it. Try to build a movement to get your whole school to take action too.
Always remember that your students’ personal circumstances could mean that they find it difficult to join you in taking these actions. This can lead to feelings of guilt and powerlessness.
This is why it’s so important to frame actions not as negatives if they’re not done, but as enormous positives if they are.
What can we do right now?
Take a small political action, and write to your representative to ask them to be a part of the solution, to support a post-fossil-fuels world and to phase out existing fossil fuel use. If you’re in the UK, there are some great tips and a very widely supported piece of policy already written up right here. If you’re outside the UK, please use it as inspiration. Also, if you’re inside the UK, Teach the Future’s petition asking the government to implement broad climate education is particularly relevant.
If you’re able to do so, then make a commitment with yourself to travel more sustainably, and to avoid flying unless it’s absolutely necessary. You can find out more about low carbon travelling here.
