More children are suffering from "eco-anxiety". This is a condition that makes people worry about the future of Earth. People worry about climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss. Teachers want more lessons in schools about climate change, wildlife and the environment. They say schools teach very little about climate change. Some teachers believe it should be taught to all year groups. A campaign group found that only four per cent of schoolchildren knew enough about the climate crisis. The group said this is making more children suffer from eco-anxiety.

Another campaign group, Earth Rangers, has taken action about eco-anxiety. It said: "Eco-anxiety is not an official...disorder. However, it does affect children in very real ways. This includes feelings of fear...and despair." It wants to understand how to help children find strategies to cope with negative feelings. It said schools should make conservation activities, and help children to teach their parents about how to protect nature. The Earth Rangers president said more action was needed to help children. She said: "Children are on the front lines of climate change."
