Please see the first page of the pack for a comprehensive mapping of the activities included against the specifications for GCSE and A-level Geography, and A-level Politics. The activities included may be used as stand-alone resources or as preparatory and companionship activities to the Fantasy Frontbench live debate: Is the UK doing enough about climate change?, which will be broadcast live on Wednesday 28th February 2018 at 19.00 -20.00, and can be viewed . The debate will be chaired by broadcaster and physicist Helen Czerski, co-chaired by a Member of Youth Parliament (MYP) and feature a number of high-profile speakers including Natalie Bennett, former leader of the Green Party, Prof. Mark Maslin, UCL academic and author, Dr. Emily Shuckburgh, deputy head of the Polar Oceans Team at the British Antarctic Survey and comedian Ahir Shah. What’s Included? Starter This starter activity introduces students to the concept and possible impact of climate change, asking them to think of their own examples and share them with the class. Main - Preparatory Knowledge This section provides the preparatory knowledge required by students to participate in the activities and forms roughly the first half of the full lesson. The resources provided introduce students to the idea of climate change as a political and social issue, encouraging them to consider how international cooperation and government policy can impact the way climate change is managed. Activity 1: Climate Change Debate This activity builds on the preparatory knowledge and sees students working in teams to debate two statements: ���The UK is doing enough about climate change’ and ‘Responsibility for tackling climate change should lie with individuals, not governments’ Activity 2: Climate Change Game Building on the preparatory knowledge, a simplified version of a game developed by James Copestake and Tom Ellum, this activity sees students work in teams representing country groups to explore climate catastrophe as a possible outcome from an environmental ‘tragedy of the commons’. If you have any questions or feedback, please send this to Fantasy Frontbench is a not-for-profit organisation, which aims to present political information in a format that is engaging and accessible. University College London (UCL) Public Policy is the official academic partner for the project.
