The Children Take Action – a Climate Change Story
Developed by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme, "The
Children Take Action – a Climate Change Story" is a children's story book that pursues the
twofold aim of increasing literacy skills and knowledge about climate change among primary school kids in
Kiribati. In a very simplified way, the book enables children to learn the basics of climate change and its
impacts on our environment. The story book is available in both English and te-Kiribati and will accompany
the new syllabus and teacher guides currently being developed for Kiribati primary schools.
