FYI Episode 147



On this week’s FYI, Braydon is in Glasgow as world leaders try to agree on action to tackle the climate crisis. We’ll be hearing from some of the young people who are taking part in youth debates alongside COP26 – and we discover how some of the things we eat here in the UK could be harming the Amazon rainforest.

Next week on FYI: For Your Info, a new team join the award winning weekly news show from Sky Kids with details of how you can also report on the show by setting up a First News / FYI News club at your school. Plus as world leaders head home from COP26, we head to Australia to see how bushfires caused by climate change have devastated the country, and we meet a child refugee puppet that has traveled thousands of miles to the U.K. – but why?

Watch six films by six young climate activists from six different continents, here. The films, made with Sky Kids, deliver a powerful message about how climate change is already having an impact on their lives, as world leaders gather in Glasgow for COP26.
