How to Raise an Environmentally Conscious Child

Now more than ever, there is a strong focus on how businesses and individuals are impacting the environment. With this in mind, you may be wondering what you can do to teach your child about climate change and other environmental issues, so that they can be more mindful of their decisions when it comes to how they dispose of their rubbish, or how they use electronics around the home. Here are some tips from an independent school in Harrow.


Teaching your child about recycling will help them understand about sustainability and making things last. Help them learn the importance of reusing and repurposing items as much as possible before throwing them away and talk to them about what happens to our rubbish when it’s taken away. Be a good role model and show them what to do with plastic bottles, paper, and other recyclable waste. 

Conserving Energy

Making little changes around the house are a great way to be more mindful of the environment. Explain to your child why it’s important to switch off the lights in rooms when you leave them or turning off phone chargers when the devices are full. Conserving energy is not only better for the environment, but it should also reduce your utility bills. 

Science Museums

If you’re looking for something to do with your kids, why not take them to a science museum? This will provide them with opportunities to learn about nature and the planet and develop a deeper understanding of the environment. 

Outdoor Activities

Spending time outdoors is another way for your child to learn to respect the environment. Perhaps you could plant some seeds or take a walk through the woods and use it as an opportunity to talk about biodiversity and climate change. If your child can build fond memories of the great outdoors, they will feel more responsible for protecting it. Perhaps consider a camping or fishing trip.
