On October 31st two Academies in one just one day took place. All in all 109 children visited the Academies at the Escola Municipal Professora Sônia Maria Coimbra Kenski and became Climate Justice Ambassadors.
Luiza, a former trained Climate Justice Ambassador, held the initial presentation. The participants were really curious about Felix and his unique story and were eager to hear about what they could do to improve the environment.
After a fun whispering game, they played the world game and discovered the inequalities between south and north, especially in terms of the emissions, all by themselves.
As the kids were motivated to learn how to give presentations as the one they had heard before, they practiced it in a rhetorical training and gave each other feedback.
After a relaxing break, they started to make plans for the future and discussed what they could do at their school to improve the environment.
Finally, the new Climate Justice Ambassadors proudly received their certificates and promised to be aware of their responsibility towards the planet and take action.
But this was not yet the end of the Academies – the most exciting part, the tree planting, took place on November 1st. The groups had lots of fun putting the slogan “Stop talking. Start planting.” into action by planting 15 new seedlings.
