Step 4: Take Action


WATCH Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot make a short film on the climate crisis on YouTube. SHARE with the group or journal something Greta said that inspired you?


DECIDE on one thing that we can do to better care for the environment. What we do counts so CHOOSE something that you believe is possible and CREATE a short video to inspire people to take action.

DIVIDE into four groups and assign each group one of the following topics: Food, Water, Energy, Waste. Each group will CREATE a short video to address the climate crisis for their topic. Begin by RESEARCHING this topic. (If you are a teacher, you can provide students with information for their topic if you want to save time).

CONSIDER the following questions in producing your video:
• What objective or goal do you want to accomplish?
• What do you want people to do after they have seen your video?
• Who is the audience you want to reach?
• What specific steps do you want them to take?
• Why should they take these steps?
• When will the steps be completed?
• What resources will be needed?
• Whose support will you need to make this happen?
• How will you present your video to the class and how will you share it
with a larger audience?
• How will you evaluate how well you have succeeded in meeting your
objective(s)?

Each group will show their video. As a class DECIDE on one of the videos to move forward on. IDENTIFY if there is a leadership person or committee that can work with the class to make this happen.
