    Answering students' questions about climate change

You ask and we answer.

Over the last four years, children from schools from across Tasmania have been sending us their questions about climate change.
Our team of climate scientists, conservation biologists, fire scientists, chemists, lawyers, engineers, psychologists, social scientists, oceanographers, Indigenous knowledge specialists and health experts, have answered more than 600 of your questions!
You can find answers to questions by searching for a particular topic, or looking at the questions we've organised into themes: most askedlooking ahead & taking action
Or you can find out what questions each class asked, or look up an expert for all their answers.
There are resources for students and teachers in our Toolkit. Here you can find information about the science of climate changeimpacts of the climate crisis, how to navigate feelings about climate change and ways to take individual and collective action
