Film-Inspired Students Catalyze Climate Action

Participants will form groups and compare curiosities about our unstable relationship with the environment. We'll speed through a micro version of the Unstoppable Schools Project: Research! Action! Exhibition! We will discuss the potential for climate action in our own school communities. Can we increase engagement, autonomy and awareness in our students by asking them to tackle this huge, real-world problem? Leave with free access to the curriculum and the film that inspired it: Chasing Coral.
