COP26 Legacy and Climate Activism
This digital session will begin with a discussion around the COP26: outcomes, successes and failures. We will then consider our own role in climate change and how we might make a difference through engaging in activism. We’ll use David Livingstone’s passionate campaign against the East African Slave Trade as a springboard from which to explore global citizenship and our personal responsibility to the planet.
The workshop ends with a zine-making activity; we will introduce the class to zines as a means of activism and provide you with the tools you need to make your own zines on the climate crisis and COP26.
By the end of the session, you will:
- Understand better the outcomes of the COP26 and how this relates to Scotland and the wider world.
- Feel empowered to act against climate crisis and have the tools to do so, through creative expression.
- SOC 3-08a I can identify the possible consequences of an environmental issue and make informed suggestions about ways to manage the impact.
- SCN 3-05b I can explain some of the processes which contribute to climate change and discuss the possible impact of atmospheric change on the survival of living things.
- SCN 3-20b Through research and discussion, I have contributed to evaluations of media items with regard to scientific content and ethical implications.
