On October 14th two Academies in one just one day took place. All in all 92 visited the Academies at CEI Professor Ulisses Falcão Municipal School and became Climate Justice Ambassadors.
One of the ambassadors who had took part in the Academy in the morning started his career as Ambassador right afterwards and inspired other children by giving the initial presentation in the afternoon. 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.
After a relaxing break, they started to make plans for the future: One group had the idea to improve the grove next door so they could increase the vegetable garden, planting a lot of fruit trees and vegetable.
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 18. The groups had lots of fun putting the slogan “Stop talking. Start planting.” into action by planting 50 new seedlings and decided to come back to see the trees grow.
