Definition of Climate Change
Climate change is a long-term change in the temperature and typical weather patterns of a place. Climate change may refer to a specific location or the entire planet. Climate change may reduce the predictability of weather patterns. These unexpected weather patterns can make it difficult to maintain and grow crops in areas that rely on agriculture, because the expected temperature and rainfall can no longer be relied on. Climate change is also related to other destructive weather events, such as more frequent and stronger hurricanes, floods, downpours and winter storms (2019, National Geographic Society).

THREE social methods children can prevent climate change
1. Conserve energy in your everyday life: Making simple choices to save energy may help avoid the serious consequences of global warming. For example, Turn off the lights, Close doors immediately so heat does not escape, etc (Mathez) .

2. Convince the people around you to save energy: Children can try to convince their parents, but do so with love and a sense of humor. Here are some suggestions of what you can do for your family and friends together. For example, replace incandescent lights with fluorescent ones, run dishwashers and other appliances in energy-saving mode and others (Mathez).

3. Keep learning: Children need the best education possible so that they can become responsible citizens and continue to make good decisions. It might help to find scientific, technical, economic or political solutions to the current situation (Mathez).
THREE environmental methods children can prevent climate change
1.Eat less meat and dairy: Eat less or less meat, especially red meat that has the greatest impact on the environment, and reduce dairy products or replace them with non-dairy products(The Grantham Institute) .

2.Cut back on flying: If you need to fly for work, consider using video conferencing instead. For travel in the same country or continent, take the train or explore the options of using electric cars. If flying is unavoidable, pay a little more to offset carbon emissions(The Grantham Institute) .

3.Cut consumption and waste: As consumers, everything we use has a carbon footprint. Avoid disposable items and fast fashion, and try not to buy more than you need. Minimize waste. Repair and reuse. Donate unnecessary items to charity or sell them so that they can gain new lives. Avoid wasting food(The Grantham Institute) .
Six action prevent climate change
1. Reduce emissions: Use less cars as much as possible, and use sustainable transportation, such as cycling, or use more public transportation. In the case of long-distance travel, trains are more sustainable than airplanes because airplanes cause large amounts of carbon dioxide to be emitted into the atmosphere (2019, Sustainability) .

2. Save energy: Reduce the number of times the appliance is on standby and always adjust the heating and air conditioning thermostats. By using household appliances carefully, we can save energy, and of course, we can save money at the end of the month (2019, Sustainability) .

3. Put the 3R principles of sustainable development into practice:
-Reduce: reduce consumption and be more efficient.

-Reuse: Use the second-hand market to give new life to items that are no longer used, or find what you need and that others have already discarded.

-Recycling: packaging, electronic product waste, etc. By recycling only half of the garbage generated at home, more than 730 kg of carbon dioxide can be saved every year (2019, Sustainability) .
