Engaging students in the climate conversation ahead of COP26

COP26 promises to be a historical landmark for accelerating combative action on climate change. The summit will bring together parties from around the world in Glasgow between 31 October and 12 November 2021, outlining new goals and policies which align with the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The conference has a critical role to play in light of the significant increase in extreme weather events experienced around the world in recent years. With the countdown to the summit now in full swing, educational facilities have an opportunity to use the event as a vehicle to engage students in the critical dialogue around climate change.

Zenergi understands that climate change can be a difficult topic for young people to understand. In response, it has launched a free, browser-based game called ‘Climate Crisis’ designed to educate children about the effects of climate change and how to play their part in reducing it.
Zenergi has also developed an activity booklet in partnership with ASCL. Together, the booklet and the game provide a ready-made set of activities which can support and enhance the work that teachers are doing with pupils on the environment and natural world.
