Welcome to the Global Learning and Exchange Week - one week dedicated to learning, sharing, and taking action to tackle climate change through ecosystem restoration. Children (aged 8-12) and their educators will benefit from inspirational talks from youth and industry leaders and learning and exchange opportunities to further develop their ideating, sketching, prototyping and pitching skills - positioning them as changemakers in the battle against climate change.
