Climate Literacy Summer School for Teens
- 💡 Description
- The project idea is to create a “Climate Literacy Summer School for Teens” in order to educate and empower high school students to take action on climate change by increasing their understanding of the science behind it and the ways in which they can make a difference. The week-long summer school will focus on bringing together high school students from rural areas, disadvantaged families or children’s homes where climate literacy is at a lower level. The Summer School will take place in a rural area, on a private field that has a guesthouse, a vegetable garden, a creek, fruit trees and a large field with a diverse biosphere and it is close to a forest. The location was chosen because it is an area that is already affected by climate change through droughts, water shortages and erosion of the ground but the local community has taken small steps in the past years to combat this. Through their actions, the participants will be able to learn activities that can be implemented in their own communities. Throughout the week every day, there will be a main theme that will be introduced through a daily lecture and then put into practice through varied activities and workshops, regarding: Biology, Environment, Food, Recycling, Fashion. In every lecture, there will be a focus on teaching the participants about ways in which they can further their knowledge, and assess the quality of the information they find online and its validity. There will also be outdoor activities and field trips to local natural areas to learn about the impacts of climate change on ecosystems. In addition to the daily lectures and workshops, the summer school will also include group projects in which students will work together to develop and present proposals for climate action projects to be implemented in their own communities. These projects will give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned to real-world scenarios and to think creatively about ways to address climate change on a local level. Through this grant, the summer school will be accessible to all interested students, by covering the costs of tuition, transportation, and accommodations. In this way, the summer school will be able to reach a diverse group of students from different socioeconomic backgrounds, providing them with the opportunity to learn about and take action on climate change. Overall, the “Climate Literacy Summer School for Teens” aims to provide a comprehensive and engaging learning experience for high school students, helping them to increase their understanding of climate change and empowering them to become advocates for action in their communities.
