King's Sustainability team are currently running an online workshop series that aim to inspire climate engagement across the King’s Community.
Led by Katie Gard, Climate Education Assistant and student in the School of Education, Communication & Society, 'The World We Want to Create: A Vision for the Future' focus on the possibilities of a better world through climate action.
These interactive sessions provide an opportunity for you to meet like-minded peers across the university and explore key issues in the climate movement. So far, students have contributed to discussing solutions to the sustainability concerns they're facing in their various departments, exploring how we can create a more sustainable future.
Discussions are often inspired by Christiana Figueres’ book 'The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis', which outlines two possible scenarios for our planet. The first describes what life on Earth will be like by 2050 if we fail to meet climate targets. The second lays out what it will be like to live in a world with net-zero emissions. You can read an extract from the book on the World Economic Forum website.
The sessions kicked off on Monday 31 January and take place fortnightly on Mondays from 15:30 – 16:30. You can register to receive diary invites and additional resources via the sign up form and join the sessions on MS Teams.
Workshop resources are available online and you can find out more about Katie on the Sustainability blog.
