The Great Big Lesson For Climate and Nature: Live from COP26

The Year 11 geographers were excited to take part in a UN-sponsored event - participating in the COP26 conference on climate change in Glasgow. They joined the live stream of the Great Big Lesson for Climate and Nature and learned about climate change and its impacts from scientists attending the conference.

The goal of the lesson was to convert learning into action by equipping the students not only with knowledge but with the ability to communicate about and act upon the climate and nature crisis. The students are empowered to put nature first, be Nature Positive and always ask the question “Yes, but what’s the impact on nature?”

Along with attendees from other schools around the world, the Mougins geographers were able to interact with the scientists through the 'chat' function, which increased their sense of participation in this globally important event.

The lesson had links to four of the UN's sustainable development goals:

  • Sustainable cities and communities
  • Responsible consumption and production
  • Climate action
  • Life on land

This made the session particularly relevant to the geographers who are also involved in Model United Nations as a Thrive activity.

Well done Year 11 geographers for your active participation and keen note-taking in this live lesson.
