On March 15th students around the world will be marching for action on climate change.


This represents a tremendous opportunity to drive powerful learning experiences for students to not only make a real impact in their communities but develop the skills they will need to address other "wicked problems" they will face in the future. Teachers, schools and parents should harness this passion and guide their students beyond protest and awareness raising towards authentic, real-world projects that solve an environmental problem in their local community or develop a solution to a broader environmental problem - such as the Ocean Cleanup founded by a Dutch 18 year-old - https://www.theoceancleanup.com/ or the Sea Bin created by two young Aussie surfers - https://www.seabinproject.com/

Imagine the global impact if just 1% of today's students came up with similar solutions!
