Climate Challenge Badges are designed to support you in undertaking educational activities. However, as you will be implementing these activities in different contexts and environments, it is up to you to ensure that the activities you choose are appropriate and safe. Exploring the natural world is a fantastic way to learn about nature; nevertheless, it is important to take some precautions to ensure nobody gets hurt. Please carefully plan and undertake activities with enough adult support to ensure that participants are safe, especially. 

We work with young people because we want to support them in leading fulfilling lives, help them prepare for their future, and for them to believe that they can make a difference in the world. The best way to make this difference is by encouraging young people to embrace long-term behaviour change. Many current social and environmental problems are caused by unhealthy or unsustainable human behaviour. Most people need to adapt their behaviour, and not just for the duration of a project, such as working on this badge, but for life. Young people know more about these issues than ever before, but many still behave in a detrimental way. It is clear that simply raising awareness is not enough to change behaviour; it requires different values, attitudes and skills.
