On 20th October, 1,500 students from across the UK gathered at King Edward VII Upper School in Sheffield for a day of talks and workshops about taking action on climate change. Chris Packham was the keynote speaker.
Ross O’Ceallaigh, Learning Programme Manager at Design South East, was invited to facilitate climate workshops with 150 secondary school students as part of the event. Using a user-friendly climate model called En-Roads, Ross worked with the students to test climate actions and co-create a scenario for the future that keeps global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius by 2100.
The workshops were engaging and empowering for the students. Together they discovered that, whilst there is no silver bullet, we can all play a role in addressing climate change and creating a better future.
The En-Roads workshop format is a fantastic way of learning basic climate science and understanding what needs to happen to get to net zero carbon. If you are interested to learn more, don’t hesitate to contact us.
