Workshop facilitator

Climate Ed

Climate Ed -Workshop Facilitator

Children in schools desperately want to know more about climate change and be given the chance to engage with it.   They need enthusiastic, positive, knowledgeable people to guide them. You will be helping children learn about climate science and the impacts of a warming planet, and also how they and their family can take practical action towards living a more sustainable lifestyle. 

Main tasks and responsibilities

You will go to a primary school in London to deliver a workshop programme about climate change/carbon footprints and inspire the children to start taking action on climate change! More specifically, this involves:

  • Undertaking a short training to gain familiarity with the workshop materials (this can be done remotely).
  •  Delivery of a programme of workshops (five in total, each lasting one hour) during school hours. (You won't manage the students alone - the teacher remains with you the whole time).
  •  Providing feedback to Climate Ed about the effectiveness of the programme.

Benefits to Volunteer
