Exploring Inventive Ways to Teach Children About Climate Change at Home

King Charles has written a children's book about the environmental dangers we face.

The Ladybird Book "Climate Change" will be released the following month.

The King welcomed international leaders to Buckingham Palace on Friday to encourage efforts to restore the natural environment.
The co-author of the book, Tony Juniper, Chair of Natural England, said the King wants to empower youth in his remarks at the event.

"I think he's been struck by the level of energy and passion shown by young people on these subjects, and was keen to put something into their hands which was about those basic facts and figures, basic ideas, but also with his personal message in there," Mr Juniper said.

In 2017 the King and Mr Juniper wrote a book for adults about climate change. The new publication aims to make the topic accessible for 7-11 year-olds and is "trying to bring the facts to the fingertips of the people who've got most to gain by finding solutions in time," Mr Juniper explained.
Leaders from government, business, charities and indigenous communities went to the palace reception to support stronger action on protecting biodiversity.

It followed promises made by nations at the UN summit COP15 in December to prevent what is called the "sixth mass extinction event".
Biodiversity - the variety of living things - is declining faster than at any time in human history.
At COP15, leaders agreed to prevent the extinction of species and raise £167 billion annually to protect nature.

In the landmark Global Biodiversity Framework agreement, almost 200 countries promised to safeguard 30% of the earth by 2030 to allow wildlife to flourish
