Climate Warriors is built on simple, tangible things kids can do, and love to do, to fight climate change and play a positive role in their environment and community.

Bangkok, Thailand – After the successful launch of climate warriors to mark Earth Day on April 22, the latter Growing up with six senses The children’s program expanded with an additional set of wings at properties around the world.

Climate Warriors is built on simple, tangible things kids can do, and love to do, to fight climate change and play a positive role in their environment and community.

It was first tested at Vooc Village in Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam, as a two-day program with children learning simple, eco-friendly habits and experiencing loads of fun activities before earning their Climate Warrior status in the form of a certificate.

The program itself varies slightly depending on each resort’s location and natural resources – beach, mountain, jungle or forest, for example – but each is presented in three parts. In Part 1, children learn about climate change and the connection between people and the environment through quizzes, games, arts and experiments at the resort’s Earth Lab. Part two looks at the solutions implemented at the Six Senses property, demonstrating the use of renewable energy, compost, upcycling and more. The third part is about “being the solution”, showing children how they can shape the future as climate advocates, including writing a letter to a local minister, cutting down on electricity or air conditioning, doing bicycle or on foot instead of taking the resort buggy and taking a shorter shower.

Grow With Six Senses is a must-have for any family vacation, and this latest addition will be presented in the same spirit: joyful and practical.
