Climate Action Week 2022
Timed with the Scottish Government’s Climate Week, Climate Action Week is a series of interactive lessons, inspiring stories and activities about climate change and what we can do about it.
This year's Climate Action Week included an invitation for pupils to create a collective piece of craftivism inspired by the artwork of artist Paul Bartlett.
He says: “I am so impressed by the enthusiasm and skill demonstrated by all who took part in the collage competition. They have really embraced the ethos of recycling and through their work highlighted the importance of protecting our natural world. The variety of creativity is truly amazing. I have been inspired by some of the novel ways these young folk have used collage and I might be stealing a few ideas myself! Well done to all who took part and I hope that you continue to be inspired by nature and share this passion with others.”
Watch the video below to find out how to make your own amazing collages as a gentle form of activism.
In 2022, we gave pupils the chance create their own collage to encourage others to protect our native wildlife. The winners of this competition were awarded a wildlife camera trap plus a virtual tour of either the Highland Wildlife Park or Edinburgh Zoo, courtesy of our friends at RZSS. Here is what they created!
