Kids as climate change advisors - Danish eco-schools

The Danish Outdoor Council, a member of IUCN, awards green flags to 'eco-schools' around Denmark, where children learn about environmental issues and get their families to commit to save CO2 in their daily lives. IUCN visited the Krogard school in Greve, 30 km south of Copenhagen, where kids and their families were affected by serious floods in 2005 and 2007. Eigil Larsen from the Outdoor Council explains the importance of educating about climate change and a green way of life, in Denmark and beyond.
