COP26 - Responsible Activism

Edinburgh School Libraries Edinburgh
-

GMT

The Climate School Strike in 2019 saw young people around the world take an interest in politics, activism, campaigning, protesting and how their actions and voices can help to change the world. With COP26 being held in Glasgow this year, we want to strengthen our young people’s skills in advocating for their beliefs in a responsible way and embed skills they can carry through life.

Our project will:

  • Introduce young people to good practice when campaigning - not just around the environment but all issues they may wish to protest (e.g. racism, LGBT+ Rights, Disabilities, etc)
  • Enable young people to engage online with an experienced campaigner/activist so that they can become more responsible activists and take part in responsible activism
  • Provide young people with the materials and skills they need to make engaging and meaningful protest banners, placards and social media posts to communicate their message
  • Encourage young people to create their own banners, placards or social media posts for #ScotClimateWeek and #COP26
  • Share the messages created by our young people through displays in their school or community library and on social media as part of a takeover of the Tales of One City Twitter account (similar to the Edinburgh school libraries LGBT+ History Month 2021 takeover). A photo of the event will be shared with Edinburgh Collected to record for historical purposes.
