    Hi I am Georgina Zadelj a family daycare educator. After being inspired last year by our World Environment Day Activities the children and I enlisted the help of parents, friends and community to help get the message across about climate change and the forever increasing risk of rising sea levels.So we made a short film called ‘Talking Environment’. This is the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lkhrvny66deqdlo/Talking%20Environment%20presented%20by%20Country%20Kids%20Childcare..avi?dl=0
