Emotional first aid kit:

From BBC news recently:
"Young people very worried about climate change"

World Climate School offers free first aid kit

Grief, anxiety, depression, despair, anger. World Climate School introduces a free program for learning how to cope efficiently with climate change induced emotions and transform them to climate action.

The founder of World Climate School, Hans Joergen Rasmussen, is a retired psychologist with more than 30 years of practice behind him.

He developed this program to enable everyone to cope with the emotional impacts of climate change. An we can promise that it works.

The futures of humanity and the Amazon forest are linked:

It is little understood how important the Amazon Forest is for the future of humanity.

But if the forest dies back, the consequences will be dramatic and bring the whole world closer to unhabitability for future generations.

Here is an article by one of our co-founder Rob de Laet, recently returned from the area.

World Climate School:
Your gateway to Transformative Education and Climate Action

What is World Climate School?

WCS is a small organisation based in Norway, with a core team of international volunteers. We have huge ambitions: We are passionate about making climate change education go viral and involve everyone, everywhere, through a Teach-The-Teachers program.

How do we contribute?

We contribute by:

Creating local WCS groups everywhere and educating them to be able to educate others. We use Zoom for our seminars.
Creating free video based lectures, launching them on Youtube and other social media.               

Our guiding principles are simple. We call them “Teach The Teachers”: Ideally, it works like this: 1 person educates 20, 20 educate 400, 400 educate 8000, 160.000, 3,2 million, 64 million, 1,28 billion.

We have now started online groups in Turkey, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and Finland, and we want to open up this year in 100 countries.

We need you to join us!

We need more people to help us reach these goals. We only have this decade to make the transition to a sustainable future. We need thinkers, educators, organisers, social media geniuses, website artists and more…

But above all we need people passionate to make this go viral NOW! If this appeals to you: Get in touch as soon as possible.
