On November 14, 2018 a workshop on climate change was held in the Youth Center of the Russian city of Krasnogorsk by AYA. The workshop was called “When the planet is hot. Myths and the truth about climate change.”
At the beginning, the participants in the workshop tried on the roles of people from different countries, of different gender, age and occupation. How will climate change affect them?
For Russia, the topic of climate change is new; of all the participants, only one person heard about climate change. Therefore, the next part of the workshop was a short lecture on the causes and consequences of climate change.
In order to try to apply knowledge in practice, the participants were offered a role-playing game. The game was adapted to Russian realities. After the game, there was a small discussion about the contribution of each person to solving the problem of climate change.
Especially for the workshop, 6 posters were created, as well as a presentation and scenario of the activity, which volunteers all over Russia can now use to tell young people about the problem of climate change.
