Earth Friendly Movies for Children
20 January 2021
2020 saw Aotearoa declare a Climate Change Emergency, with the environment and our impact on it a hot topic of conversation. The next generation of caretakers will play a vital role in global conservation and protecting our planet in the future.
Environmentally friendly movies can inspire children to appreciate nature and help foster an awareness and desire to look after our planet. Understanding and talking about climate change can be a challenging concept to explain to children, and environment-focused movies are a great way to start the conversation. They can promote meaningful lessons through delightful and engaging entertainment – what better way for children to learn!
