Global Campus Workshop: Urgency + Optimism = Climate Action

Last week a number of Secondary students took part in an online Global Campus workshop in preparation for the upcoming UNICEF World Children’s Day.

World Children’s Day is UNICEF’s annual day of action for children, by children. Every year, the day is celebrated to make sure that young people across the globe get the chance to have their voice heard. This year the main focus of the day will be on climate change and climate action.

Global Campus Workshop

The workshop was hosted by Kinvara Jardine Paterson, Senior Campaign Manager for the World’s Largest Lesson. Throughout the online session her aim was to interact with students and to encourage them to share their views about climate change with their peers in order to inspire climate action both within their local communities and beyond.

The students were informed that there are 7 core principles for effective climate communication as follows:

It was a great experience for the students to build on the success of our own International Day which itself focused on the three Sustainable Development Goals 13, 14 and 15 below:
