Teach The Future
Founder and Campaign Co-ordinator
Joe Brindle is 17-year-old climate activist and campaigner. I’m a campaigner at the UK Student Climate Network where I founded the Teach the Future campaign for climate education. When I began to understand the true severity of the climate crisis I felt shocked and angry that 14 years of education had failed to teach me even the basics on this topic, this is why I think the government should legislate to make climate change a mandatory topic in all schools. We have written a bill, the first education bill ever written by students, to show the Government what we think needs to change.
