The children and young people of today form the Regeneration Generation. Because, by learning from the errors of the past, they’ll regenerate Planet Earth by combatting climate change – and put a smile back on the face of the planet itself!  

 

"Children gained a notion of Science ideas outside their typical science lessons. It prompted our children to take a responsibility for saving their planet.  The entire process was a breeze. I was so happy that the timetabling of the day was provided for us from As Creatives as opposed to having to organise this ourselves. Th staff were very prepared and professional. We will definitely book again!" Growing for Gold Workshop, Childwall CE Primary School

 

Workshop Description

Accommodating the whole of up to a two-form entry school in just a single day, The Regeneration Generation – Saving Planet Earth starts with a whole-school assembly looking at what climate change is, what it does and where it comes from. This leads into a series of drama-based workshops in which each year group tackles its own “regeneration” question – seeking everyday, local solutions to a global problem.  

P1 /Junior Infants:  Regeneration at Home - what can we do at home to help save Planet Earth? 

P2 / Senior Infants: Dressing for Regeneration - how can what we wear help save Planet Earth? 

P3 / 1st class: Regeneration Journeys – how can the way we travel help save Planet Earth? 

P4 /2nd class: Shopping for Regeneration - how can what we buy (and where we shop) help combat climate change? 

P5 / 3rd class: Eating for Regeneration – how can what we eat (and where we buy our food) help combat climate change? 

P6 / 4th class: Recycling to Regenerate - how can recycling help combat climate change? And what does it look like in practice? 

P7 /5th class: Regeneration Persuasion - how can we look beyond the obvious to persuade the world to combat climate change?
