Comics about climate change - children's behaviour

15 May 2020

Climate change is a major problem currently facing society. While many understand what they can do to combat it, actual changes in behaviour are limited.
Our project aims to create teaching materials to develop children’s sense of agency – that their actions can have an impact on climate change.
This survey asks parents’ about the likelihood of their children carrying out activities that are good for the environment. Findings will allow us to tailor materials to children’s current behaviour.


  • Age 18+
