Empowering Young Voices for the Planet

Because action is the best antidote to climate change!

If you haven’t yet viewed the Young Voices for the Planet films, you need to. Immediately. And so do your students! These remarkable films showcase nine youth advocates who, starting with nothing but enthusiasm, are shrinking the carbon footprint in their homes, schools, and communities. And now, with the help of this corresponding teacher’s guide, you can help your students take action against global warming, too.

Above all else, Empowering Young Voices for the Planet is about teaching students the science and reality of climate change, while empowering them to respond effectively—and without fear.  Inside this guide you’ll find

  • Inspiring true stories of low- or no-cost youth-led projects that address a wide range of environmental issues  and engage schools, local government, businesses, the public, and parents
  • Practical tips for inspiring students to develop projects relevant to their own communities, including planning, financing, safety, and liability
  • Many creative and replicable ways to reduce CO2 emissions, as well as connections to the Next Generation Science Standards


Discover for yourself what a powerful catalyst "think globally, act locally" can be when integrated into STEM, social studies, environmental studies, and civic engagement lessons. If not now, when?


"The entire film series is beyond fantastic. Through the YVFP films we witness youth taking a stand to fight to save their planet and their future."
