These expert-led sessions have been programmed to take you through the stages to becoming a creative activist from why it’s needed, what it means and how you can do it, how you can have the power to make positive changes to our world.
The Creative Activism Academy is open to 15 – 25 year olds and will deepen knowledge and understanding of Climate change/SDGs and their links to migration through a range of creative active and participatory workshops enabling them to take positive action locally. This will encourage momentum and sustainability for the Changemaker groups beyond the project. As a result of attending the Academy, young people will be equipped with the necessary Global Citizenship knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to take informed and creative action on global issues related to climate change and migration in the run-up to COP 26.
Friday 4 September, 2 – 3pm
