Creative Learning Workshops: Climate Change

Your group of children or young people can engage with one of the most important issues in the world today in a creative manner that will bring awe and wonder to the subject of the environment

About

We know how much children and young people care about the environment. Kirklees has witnessed some truly inspiring creative workshops that engage children and young people with the topic of Climate Change.

As part of the With Nature 2020 event, The Children's Art School partnered with Kirklees Culture Declares Emergency to deliver the fantastic Kirklees Cuckoo - a 20m x 20m image of the endangered Kuckoo created using clothing donated by local communities. 

Upcycle Fashion delivers creative workshops for schools and colleges promoting responsible production and use of clothing, with a whole host of topics and activities to choose from, including climate change, ethical fashion, hand sewing skills, T-shirt transformation, as well as whole school projects.

Benefits to Children and Young People

As Chloe Williams from The Children's Art School regularly states, 'art teaches children and young people that they can change their world', and this is very much why we believe creative learning approaches can be so effective when tackling big topics such as climate change.

The workshops offered by our partners will not only provide important information about climate change, they will also develop children and young people's sense of agency.

The workshops will encourage children and young people to develop their own ideas for how they might create a better future.

Costs

Arts organisations and creative pracitioners can design workshops that fit your needs and resouces.
