Connecting Climate Change with Human Rights
Have high school students analyse their own opinions on climate change, recognise that others may have differing opinions, and understand how this can cause potential barriers for climate change mitigation
Increase high school student understanding of the connection between climate change impacts and human rights
Inspire high school students to develop ideas for potential solutions to the impacts of climate change around the world
Impacting the Challenge: by focusing on how climate change impacts human rights, it should be easier to visualise the current and future impacts of climate change. Students can learn specific examples of how climate change will disrupt human life, and understand how different populations around the world are impacted unequally by climate change. Some populations are more vulnerable to climate change than others, and some populations have and continue to contribute to climate change more than others.
Measuring success: informally asking what students have learnt today, and asking for their biggest takeaways. This can be further solidified by doing a 3, 2, 1 exit ticket, asking students to write down 3 things they learnt, 2 things that surprised them, and 1 remaining question they have.
