Enriching Education: Science Moms

Research has shown that moms are the group that are both the most concerned about climate change, and the most likely to do something about it. It makes sense: a mom's number one job is to protect her kids.


In many places climate change is causing severe weather events that can’t be ignored. And last year, more than 11,000 scientists declared the planet was facing a climate emergency. For parents, learning about climate change doesn’t have to be boring - the more we know about what’s happening to our kids’ world, the more likely we are to take action.
