On October 17th two Academies in one just one day took place. All in all 45 children visited the Academies at Escola Municipal Paranaguá and became Climate Justice Ambassadors.
The two Climate Justice Ambassadors Kauã and Camile who gave the initial presentation in the morning also held the presentation in the afternoon, but with more confidence. The participants were really curious about Felix and his unique story.
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. And with a little support during the presentation by the Ambassadors who held the talk in the beginning, everyone was performing great and came over their timidity.
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. They created the “Workshop in Nature” to collect caps and seals to donate them in exchange for wheelchairs and street food.
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 October 22. The groups had lots of fun putting the slogan “Stop talking. Start planting.” into action by planting 40 new seedlings.
