 Let’s Talk About Climate

 

In the autumn of 2019 Oxford University Museum of Natural History will be running a project called Let’s Talk About Climate.

This is a chance for young people between the ages of 15 and 19 to review the evidence associated with climate change first hand, talk to the experts and respond. Through six interactive workshops, participants will learn about the science of climate change, think about positive actions, and work out how to pass on their own message to influence decisions made at individual, local and national levels.

The workshops are scheduled to take place on Saturday mornings from 14th September until19th October. Activities will culminate in an outreach event on Saturday 2nd November. In each workshop around 20 participants will take part in talks and practical activities delivered and organised by researchers and education specialists. A team of facilitators will support small groups of 5 or 6 young people by helping them frame their own questions and responses.

 

We would like to recruit a team of 6 facilitators

This paid role would suit someone who is studying or has studied any aspect of climate change and is keen to gain more experience in public engagement with research. We are looking for someone who is passionate about sharing their expertise with young people.

This is a project funded through The Public Engagement Lab programme.
