About this site

Welcome to Climate Choices – Children’s Voices

Climate change is potentially one of the most critical issues facing the world – one that will affect all parts of the planet. It is crucial that all of us begin to understand the probable causes, likely affects, and how our everyday choices have global consequences.

The current focus of Climate Choices – Children’s Voices is on the causes and consequences of climate change and the impact our current food production systems have on that change. This is one area where children are able to make informed choices and begin to understand how their small contribution can make a difference.

The site provides opportunities to explore current weather patterns around the world and the initiatives that are being implemented to combat the effects of extreme conditions, particularly among poorer communities. Children can use the evidence provided to consider whether these extreme conditions are a sign of change and how future generations will cope with the new challenges.

Information about practices in the provision of foods through global sourcing and factory processing is presented as a series of interactive scenarios that highlight the contribution that food production may make to the global picture.
