Action Week for Climate Protection 2019

As part of the Action Week for Climate Protection which took place from 25.11 to 29.11, staff at the University of Potsdam focused on the topic of climate change in several forums. Joanna Thompson discussed how to talk about climate change with children. Students were then given the task of shooting short videos which dealt with one aspect of this topic in English.
They worked in three groups, with one preparing a vegan meal, one participating in an upcycling task and one group discussing the protection of woodland areas.

One of the videos can be viewed here.
