Hotting Up!

England, Scotland, Wales

"Climate change is real! It is happening right now! It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species." - Leonardo Di Caprio, Oscar winner's speech 2016

The issue can be overwhelming. The science is complicated. Predictions about the fate of the planet carry endless caveats and asterisks.

But we are here to help, and this fun workshop will get your pupils engaging with the topic and learning about climate change in an exciting and open environment. The use of drama will give your pupils a running start on understanding what the problems are and how we can face them together. All the while, developing teamwork, confidence and performance skills!

The “Hotting Up” workshop will take a look at …

  • WHAT IS CLIMATE? Come with us into our secret “climate machine” to find out!
  • HOTTING UP! – The sun is hot, but pollution is turning up the heat even faster
  • GREENHOUSE EARTH – Just what exactly is ‘the greenhouse effect’?
  • WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? – This extra heat is not good for us!
  • GOOD NEWS FOR FISH – But bad news for people! Why?
  • STORMS AHEAD! – Here is our very own weather forecast!
  • NAH, IT’S NOT REALLY HAPPENING IS IT? – Some people don’t understand or agree!
