FAQ

Join our expert educators to understand the connection between energy production and climate change. Students will discover how electricity is generated, understand the impacts it has on climate change and the important role renewable energy plays, and discuss political and social solutions (systems change) to increase agency and empowerment in students.

Through a variety of hands on activities your students will:

Years 3 – 6

  • Discover how the Project Drawdown transport solutions can help create ecological, livable cities which encourage sustainable transport.
  • Connect to Earths’ natural resources and natures’ cycles as they understand how transport is a major contributor to climate change and global warming.
  • Learn new skills to guide their actions, including:
    • Understand the difference between a combustion and electric engine
    • Analyze different types of transport and their effect on the environment

Years 7 – 10

  • Discover the Project Drawdown solutions framework and how it is a structure to mitigate and reverse the effects of climate change.
  • Connect to Earths’ natural resources and natures’ cycles as they understand how human activities and behaviors have created a global environmental tipping point.
  • Learn new skills to guide their actions that can help restore natural systems, including:
    • Analyse climate change solutions
    • Connect environmental issues to social and political issues

You’ll receive a school teacher guide, including instructions for optional activities to do before and after the CERES incursion to get your students thinking, discussing and actively contributing to a world that is environmentally sustainable for all living creatures.

Years 3-6

  • Students understand that internal combustion engines are the leading cause of global transport emissions and that electric vehicles (EV) are a sustainable alternative.
  • Students explore sustainable transport solutions and how they can be applied to their local communities to help lower greenhouse gas emissions.
    Understand the cause and effects of climate change.

Years 7-10

  • Students understand that we rely on ecosystems for everything. We are part of it and that our activities can affect how it functions, and it’s ability to recover from damage.
  • Students explore solutions to the climate crisis by investigating climate solutions in the Project Drawdown solutions framework.
