COP26 Schools Resource – Sustrans.org.uk
With COP26 coming to Glasgow this year, our team in Scotland have put together a schools resource pack which focuses on 20-minute neighbourhoods – places which are good for people and for the planet.
These resources will help students learn all about 20-minute neighbourhoods and reimagine their local area.
How our COP26 resource works
The resource consists of five workshops with four themes:
• Engage – The first two sessions aim to engage the pupils with the content of the workshops.
Session 1a focuses on climate change and COP26, while
session 1b introduces the concept of 20-minute neighbourhoods.
• Explore – Pupils head out into the local area to explore and survey their 20-minute neighbourhood.
• Evaluate – Back in the classroom, pupils evaluate the local area using maps, discussing what has been found and what could be improved.
• Create – Reflecting on what they have discovered, pupils create a vision of their 20-minute neighbourhood.
