The climate issue from children's perspective : A literature study on students' conceptions about the climate change, its causes, consequences and measures to reduce its effects (English)
Abstract [en]

The climate issue has become more relevant in the last decade with international alarm reports being exposed in various media. Today's social discussions are characterized by this complex subject, and our way of life affects the climate both for us and for future generations. Therefore, it is important that our children are given the opportunity to make decisions concerning the climate. The school has an important role in conveying knowledge and answer the primary school students' conceptions of climate change and its causes. The purpose of this literature study is to present primary school students' conceptions towards causes, concequenses and actions regarding the on going climate change, and their information sources, according to current research. Findings from this study may be useful for teachers so that they could be able to meet common misconceptions among the students. The material we have reviewed consists of 14 scientific studies from different parts of the world, to get a broad picture of what conceptions students can have about climate change. The results show that students have good knowledge of certain aspects of the climate issue, for example, that carbon dioxide emissions are a contributing factor to the increasing greenhouse effect and global warming, but at the same time there are many misconceptions about what the greenhouse effect, global warming and climate change entails. The students showed many conceptions about how we can reduce the on going climate change, but the willingness to implement these actions was low if they had to change their way of life.
