Organise a School Climate Summit – KS 3 and 4

organise a school climate summitDuring the SEACS project, the UK partners chose to organise a School Climate Summit for secondary school pupils. Groups attended from Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire to debate and devise a resolution on Climate Change.

This resource contains everything you need to create your own Climate Summit. It could be used as part of an off timetable day for a year group, or as a series of Geography or Citizenship lessons. The resource was designed for a Year 9 group (Eighth Grade, US and Australia) but during our event younger and older pupils attended and benefited.

Each group takes on the role of a government delegation representing a particular country. Collectively the groups aim to reach a global agreement on climate change while keeping the voters in their home country happy. Being involved in a Climate Summit event allows pupils to consider the wider global and political issues surrounding climate change and understand why it’s a complicated problem to solve.
