We’re frustrated by the lack of climate action from our political leaders. We're driving action instead by talking to our parents and asking them to join us by making a climate pledge.

What is Teach the Parent?

Teach the Parent is led by young people, for young people.

We want to support and engage our parents in meaningful, constructive and informative conversations about the climate crisis. These conversations are designed to happen informally - this could be around the dinner table, on a walk or sitting on the sofa.

Young people are taking action into their own hands and educating their parents on the climate crisis, sharing how it makes them feel, with the hopes to encourage their parents to take action.

Get involved

Our are parents aware of the extent of the climate crisis we might face in the future as young people, and the urgency that is needed to tackle the climate crisis?

Teach the Parent centres around the idea that climate education can be provided outside educational institutions, and young people have the potential to impact adults’ mindsets and behaviours by delivering this climate education through these conversations.
