Children face growing climate impacts

The next generation have done nothing to cause the climate crisis, yet they stand to bear the greatest burden. Many already are. Without immediate and widespread action to hold global temperature rise to 1.5°C within the next decade, our children and grandchildren will inherit a planet that looks very different than it does today.

We must empower them to create solutions.

We have the responsibility to teach young children about climate change and help them to create a more sustainable future. 

At VIBE, we aim to educate and inform children through powerful storytelling, information sharing, and community building. That's why we created Earth's Climate Heroes

Written by VIBE founder Daniele Horton, Earth's Climate Heroes stems from a passionate mother who also has a robust background in climate science and sustainable development. Earth's Climate Heroes is colorful, bright, and richly illustrated to capture the imagination of children while evoking a sense of hope.

As a mom, teacher, and environmental activist I felt like we needed better tools to educate the next generation about climate change. A simple, easily understandable approach addressing what causes it as well as what we can do to help resolve it. I teach sustainability to master’s degree students too, and it seems many still do not connect how our way of life has been negatively impacting the environment. The idea for this book began when I was trying to explain climate change to my own kids. I started doodling to illustrate it—that's when we decided to work together on a book for other kids. The discussion of climate change can be overwhelming and scary.  While this educational book acknowledges the potential dangers, it is also a message of hope and possibility with a call for engagement and action for young people globally to help build a better future together.
