The focus of this paper is the insights of school children on the strategies of reducing impacts and effects of climate change in schools and communities which was based on the lessons learnt from Environmental Education and counselling programmes carried out in some selected secondary schools in Anambra State, Nigeria within the period 2009-2012. Three research questions guided the study. The sample consisted of 600 students selected through simple random sampling. A 42-item questionnaire was used to collect data. Data was analyzed using frequency and percentages. Findings from the study revealed that all the strategies are capable of reducing impacts and effects of climate change. Based on the findings, it was recommended among other things that school children should participate in decision making in schools, homes and communities.
