A new teaching resource to help young people take action on climate in their own communities.
Ynni Sir Gâr have developed a new and timely teaching resource to help teachers and young learners across the county to learn more about how to take action on climate in their communities.
The resource, aimed at pupils at Key Stage 3-4 (14-16yr olds) has been developed to complement and enhance the Curriculum of Wales and targets its four purposes. The resource, modelled on a DIY manual includes background information on the numerous global and local challenges that are related to the climate and nature crisis. However, it also aims to show that there are practical things young people can do to contribute locally to addressing them. Included are stories of hope, and encouragement for pupils and their teachers, as a way of combating rising climate anxiety and to inspire campaigns that can affect change through our schools and communities.
This manual will help pupils learn about the importance of mitigating climate change and reducing our environmental footprint through a series of DIY activities. These activities can be used to expand upon certain parts of the Curriculum for Wales or used as a means of encouraging extra-curricular ideas and activities amongst pupils. The package is accompanied by a Power Point presentation for use in the classroom.
The project was supported by Leader European funding.
