- Your Planet, Your Questions: in June 2021 Professor Brian Cox chaired a panel of experts in answering children’s questions about the future of our planet. Aimed at children aged 5 to 14 the Your Planet, Your Questions event was produced in collaboration with the Great Science Share for Schools. It aimed to enthuse young people about the science of climate change and the future of their planet, promoting scientific inquiry and investigation in these areas. There are six key questions answered throughout Your Planet, Your Questions, and more information about these and short video clips of the key questions can be found on our website or YouTube playlist. Through these recordings teachers can gain and share up-to-date information about climate change from experts in their fields, supporting discussions with students about climate change and biodiversity loss.
- Global challenges: produced by the Society in collaboration with the British Council, for the Commonwealth Science Class project, these resources explore climate science and sustainability.
- Take a bite out of climate change: produced by a previous Exhibitor from the Summer Science Exhibition, these resources look at the impact of food and agriculture on climate change.
- #2050Challenge: to help highlight the range of solutions and ideas that scientists are creating and researching to help avert a climate crisis, the Royal Society has launched a campaign, the #2050challenge, for people to share stories of their work, research, and actions to help countries of the world tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and achieve ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050. Find out how to get involved and share your video via social media using #2050Challenge. View a sample of the challenge videos as well as one teacher's insight into the importance of engaging young people in the classroom with climate issues.
