Offsetting Your Carbon Footprint

March 3 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Everyone’s carbon footprint is​ different, and we must remain mindful of our day-to-day ​activities​, especially activities that increase the emission of greenhouse gases. Together during this workshop we will calculate our ecological footprints, consider our ​day-to-day ​habits​ + personal choices​​, and draft a short piece of writing about how ​to address climate change. We’ll design a climate action plan and advocate for ways that everyday people can reduce ​their waste levels, water usage, and dependency on nonrenewable energy sources!

Offsetting Your Carbon Footprint is a ninety minute ​workshop designed to engage students in the research and writing process, explore how the art of storytelling can make change in the world, and draft an original ​climate action plan​​​. We’ll also think about how other kinds of ​activities​ ​directly and indirectly pollute the atmosphere​—not just ​air pollution, but​ ground level pollution e.g.,​ ​the draining of rivers, reed destruction, and deforestation. We’ll explore creative ways to reduce carbon footprint (example: alternatives to driving), and​ help our neighbors​ think about​ their consumption and waste levels.​

This workshop is intended for ages 6-12

Taught by D’Real R. Graham
