‘Get creative for the Climate! is a primary schools and settings project that will run over the Autumn 2 half-term. Please see the project brief below for further details as well as the associated School Support Pack.
It is a challenging time in school at the moment and the ‘new normal’ is now upon us as we find ways of living with Coronavirus such that it does not completely dominate our lives and we can start to re-engage with other important priorities. One of those priorities is, of course, the Climate Emergency for which the similarities with the current pandemic are not lost - we are all in it together.
So, we wanted to really capture the creativity, the enthusiasm and the inspiration we need to pro-actively address the Climate Emergency; to challenge a sense of powerlessness and empower our children and young people to feel that their small actions can combine together to make a big difference – who would have thought, e.g. a 15 year old schoolgirl sitting outside the Swedish parliament building in the summer of 2018 would have had the worldwide impact it did! a sentiment further recently developed by Prince William in launching the new £50 million Earthshot environmental prize when he said that "positivity" had been missing from the climate debate, "the Earthshot prize is really about harnessing that optimism and that urgency to find some of the world's solutions to some of the greatest environmental problems,".
Though in a very different class to the prestigious Earthshot awards, but nevertheless adopting that same spirit of positivity, we would like to invite and encourage your school to ‘Get creative for the Climate!
