Climate change could affect so many of the things we care about, from our families to our food to our futures. But it's easy to forget this when all you hear about climate change is graphs, scientists and politicians arguing.
We need passion and creativity to inspire people to act. And that's why Stop Climate Chaos Cymru and The Climate Coalition are asking children and young people around the UK to make their own short films. We want young people to show everyone why fighting climate change matters.
Your pupils don't need to be film-making experts (yet!). Films only need to be 2-3 minutes long, and we have loads of tips on our website. All they need is something to say about climate change. We welcome films in English, Welsh or a mixture of both languages.
You could use our new climate change resources to get started

The most inspiring films in will be featured in the Coalition's public campaign in 2015. And there are plans for an exciting Close-up on Climate event later this year where the best films will be shown.
