For teachers/ youth workers/ home educators. If you work with young people (ages 8 – 18) then this is for you!
Following the first of these events in July, here is a second session to further explore strategies for those of us working with young people.
Climate change is happening, and it’s crucial that we educate and engage our youth in the debate.
Our free masterclass with creative practitioner, Lynn Clausen, is an interactive one- hour session demonstrating different creative strategies for you to use to support young people in discussion about climate change without the panic. The focus is on engaging in a positive approach encouraging strategies through the format of writing (both individual and group).
A space to share how we can talk about climate change (and the times we are living in) in a creative way to help young people feel engaged and more confident to face the challenges ahead.
Attendance to the first session is not a pre-requisite! Come and join us and be a part of the sharing of ideas.
