Last week was exciting - we heard from our youngest climate millionaire yet. We were pretty inspired by what we heard, and wanted to write back...
Dear Mystery Millionaire
We can tell you're very aware already. Believe it or not, you know more about climate change than some of us older humans.
You pointed out impacts that you've already seen - "The sea wall in Island Bay washed down. They fixed it but it will probably wash away again."
And some great solutions that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions: "Get an electric car; use public transport and human transport; eat less red meat; don't travel so much for holidays".
You asked us "How can intermediate school kids help?"
Here are 5 things that we can think of:
There are lots of other things that you can do too, especially with a bit of imagination. You could think of something you love doing - like telling stories, making art, playing music, or being active - and then brainstorm ways of combining that with climate change. For example, I like making up bad jokes and putting them on posters. I've included a sneak peek of one of them at the end...
Let us know if you can think of something we can do to help. Feel free to share Climate Millionaire - we'd love to hear more from you and your friends.
Thank you, Mystery Millionaire!
