“Message from the future” – Good Energy calls on pupils to imagine their future and the impact of climate change on it
How is global warming going to change the world over the next 30 years?
That’s the question that Good Energy - https://www.goodenergy.co.uk/ - one of the leading renewable energy providers - is asking the UK’s school children to answer in an exciting nationwide competition, titled ‘A Message from the Future’.
The challenge is simple.
9-16 year olds are being asked to imagine they’ve been transported 30 years in the future. The world around them isn’t as they left it, due to climate change. But how is it? Better or worse? Did humanity promptly react to save the planet? What did they do to save it? Will we have consumed all the resources and ruined our biosphere?
Working together as a class with their teachers, their task is to explain to their 2017 selves what impact climate change has had on their local area, in whatever format they like – a 3 minute video, a quick story or letter, or an image.
Good Energy would like to give school pupils the chance to speak out about the future - their future, and how they imagine it.
Prize: a trip to the Eden Project in Cornwall where the pupils will take part in a fun, interactive renewable energy workshop with Good Energy CEO and founder, Juliet Davenport. The winners will also be featured in a short film and there will be lots of press around the day, so prepare to be a star!
