The climate crisis is continuing, and we need solutions. This resource, in association with Doc Academy and Picture Zero Productions, is suitable for use with learners aged 11–16 and includes themes of climate change, global issues, consumption, recycling, green initiatives, net zero, sustainability, and youth voice. 

Feature-length documentary The People Vs Climate Change is the catalyst for the activities within this resource which guide young people through four phases in the process of researching, discussing, debating and voting for their own solutions to help the UK reach its net zero goal.

Using a variety of feature films, short films and archival footage as stimuli for discussion, students will be encouraged to share their thoughts and suggestions for a more positive future. As a result of taking part in this learning sequence, young people should be motivated to put their suggestions into action and be more empowered to discuss and understand climate change issues. 

This resource is suitable for curriculum and GCSE exam specification teaching for geography, English and citizenship and can support the 2023 model science curriculum. In addition, it can support educators to tackle Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate Action of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
