An education on climate change in the palm of your hand is what a visiting facilitator held as he displayed some 50 cards with information on the topic.
Climate Fresk facilitator, Colin Elliott was visiting the Lloydminster Public Library from Terrace, B.C.
He says Climate Fresk can be viewed as a workshop or even a game that looks at how climate change affects the world, and in particular, the role of human activity.
Elliott sees the first step of Climate Fresk being education.
“You need to educate yourself to know what’s happening, why it’s happening and then hopefully we can see some steps that you can take in your own life to have a more minimal impact on the climate.”
Elliott says that could be things you do at home, or with an organized group, or even advocacy.
“There’s a million things we can all do from recycling to composting to eating differently. We can’t make everybody change at the same time, but through education, I think we can help people realize some of the changes they can make in their own lives,” says Elliott.
