This is a chance to accentuate the positive, to showcase and highlight the many responses that are already taking place, and encourage more to be invented, envisioned, enacted. Through talks, workshops and the suggested wider reading, you will identify an area of concern that you want to respond to. You will then create an outcome that helps address this concern and shows an audience the way, and the how, of choosing a positive response to it.
Human activities like extracting, refining, transporting and burning fossil fuels emits too much greenhouse gases, including CO2, for the ecosystem to remove accordingly. The CO2 generated by us relies on the same ecosystem to be removed, however, with mass amounts of deforestation happening at the same time, the imbalance is becoming more apparent and is causing damage to our environment. Each person has their own individual footprint that contributes to the irreversible effects of climate change and global warming.
