Caring for Climate and Change – Virtual excursion
Join our expert educators to understand the connection between energy production and climate change.
Students will discover how electricity is generated, understand the impacts it has on climate change and the important role renewable energy plays, and discuss political and social solutions (systems change) to increase agency and empowerment in students. Our educators will guide students through problem solving and action planning to create change within their school community and explore solutions to create change at school or home.
Key questions for students to consider:
Y3-6: What is carbon? How is electricity generated and how can we do it better? What are the causes and effects of climate change?
Y7-10: What is climate change? What are the major systems contributing to climate change? How can individuals contribute to a more sustainable and just world?
Y11-12: What is sustainable building design? How are Australian homes contributing to the climate crisis? How can we design sustainable and equitable homes for every Australian?
