Woodcraft Folk Support Young People to Speak Out About Climate Change!

Thursday, 7 March 2019

Climate change is the most urgent issue of our time. Yet not enough is being done. Children and young people are taking action because the adults entrusted with making policy decisions are not doing enough to address the impending climate crisis.

Why DFs are campaigning on climate change and how you can help

Monday, 9 February 2015

Climate Change is terrifying. You know that, of course you do, but just in case you’re not really really feeling the fear, hopelessness and overwhelming despair in this exact moment, I’ve got some facts to shake you up a little. Did you know that already, a whole island of people have become refugees after they had to flee the rising tide. Or that after a global temperature rise of 2C, climate change will not be something we can stop because the ice and frost that melts as a result of this temperature rise releases greenhouse gases, that cause more ice and frost to melt.

Fun at Festivals with Face Your Elephant

Woodcraft Folk are invitied to help festival-goers increase their knowledge of science and engineering and how to reduce their carbon emissions.

Some Woodcraft Folk members may remember "Face Your Elephant” from previous years and it's back for 2014. FYE is seeking to recruit up to 50 engineering students to receive training and engage with festival goers in a variety of fun, interactive ways at two great festivals this year; Latitude and Shambala.

What can we do about global warming?

More than 340 different organisations in 27 countries like the lyrics to the Global Warming song – now it’s on YouTube! Here is the link for a performance by the Making Waves choir: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9g_Ucr4twQ&feature=youtu.be

 

All Together Against Climate Change Handbook

Here is the newest handbook published by our friends from IFM dealing with a topic we all should really care about-our climate.

The description from IFM says: 'one of the results of the All Together Against Climate Change project is ready to use: the new IFM-SEI Publication, a Handbook for Action Against Climate Change!

This Handbook is full of useful methods and theory about how to work with our groups/organi­sations on the topic of climate change, we hope you enjoy it.'

You can download the pdf version from the IFM homepage on the link below.
