Connected Global Citizens

Project: Research council

Project Details


This project aims to alleviate schoolchildren's anxiety about the climate crisis by connecting them with local groups of adults working to improve the environment. The project will generate school/community connections and groups will jointly identify and work on specific local environmental issues. Community groups volunteer to do preservation and conservation work, largely unseen by school children, often with a climate focus, such as local carbon neutral campaigns, is directly related to the issues driving School Strikes for Climate. The hypothesis is that connecting young and adult citizens concerned about the climate will address pressing concerns. Key areas of research will include identification different perceptions of the local environment and means of co-creating generative approaches leading to local climate action.
The project will centralise young global citizens' concerns by adopting participatory collaborative methods to create representations of local areas with community groups that will be displayed in community spaces.
