Abstract


The paper appraised awareness of climate change among secondary school students in Rivers State. Relevant literature related   to   the   issues   were   reviewed   accordingly   and the   literature focused   on   the   concepts   of   climate   change   and   global   warming,   the   level   of   awareness   of secondary school students on the climate change issues, sources of information about climate change issues among secondary students,  perception of students about the causes  of  climate change and factors inhibiting the awareness of climate change issues among secondary school students.  The paper concluded that most students of secondary schools are aware of climate change   as   well   as   their   causes   and   effect   on   the   environment.   Notwithstanding,   certain constraints militate the creation of awareness in the schools. From the forgoing, it recommends amongst others the need to establish climate change awareness clubs in the secondary schools in Rivers State and the nation at large so as to mobilize the students who are future leaders on the importance of bracing up to the challenges of climate change.
