In the short term, this idea helps vulnerable people prepare for the effects of climate change, potentially saving many lives. Long term, it catalyses a major cultural shift around climate and adaptation. By educating and empowering kids from a young age, an entire generation could grow up more prepared to face the problems of our changing planet.
