Offsetting Your Carbon Footprint
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
