Wicked Weather Watch
Wicked Weather Watch brings climate change to life for children by drawing on the personal experiences of Artic explorers and scientists who have witnessed the effects of climate change first-hand. Through their inspirational school visits and ‘Arctic Extravaganza’ workshops, young children learn how to mitigate the impact of climate change in their own lives. All of Wicked Weather Watch’s programmes are free, and the majority of their work is targeted at schools in the most disadvantaged areas. Founded by explorer and adventurer Sir David Hempleman-Adams in 2009, Wicked Weather Watch has already worked with 80 schools and reached over 6,600 children. A grant from The Fore will expand Wicked Weather Watch’s operating model to wider audiences, scaling the number of schools it works with and increasing financial sustainability with new income streams.
