Learning about climate change and sustainable development with Generation Z

07/03/2024 - 14/03/2024
Three schools in Gipuzkoa
170 attendees


The aim of this activity is to raise the awareness of secondary education students about climate change, the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The activity is also designed to find out how young people perceive the problem of climate change, what their main concerns are, and attempt to mobilise and engage this key group so that they will take action to reduce their environmental impact and contribute towards achieving the various SDGs.

The activity aims to use both physical and digital gamified activities and participatory dynamics in the format of Trivial Pursuit to connect, increase knowledge and create a space for participation in which young people can reflect on the problems of climate change and sustainability. The idea is also for participants to share their experiences and commit to fighting climate change by making proposals on how to achieve the SDGs on climate and biodiversity. This edition includes a new dynamic in which the objective is to create a conceptual map on climate change, establishing the relationship between its causes and consequences and the actions that we can take on a daily basis to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

These activities allow us to find out the level of knowledge of these young people about these issues, their concerns and behaviours, and their predisposition to changing their habits. This will make it possible to plan and design climate change awareness-raising actions specifically targeted at this audience.
