In this video, you will hear from students discussing their thoughts on learning about climate change. Community Partner, Audra Carson, Founder and Chief Beautification Strategist of Izzie LLC issued a challenge letter to students to express their creative stories around describing the good and the bad parts of how climate change impacts their lives. Students were asked to show up with a 45 to 60 second video of what they have learned from their two years working with SEMIS Coalition Program Associate, Mr. King.
Renaissance High School students explain how they have been impacted by being in a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Literacy Program. Addressing the question, “What has been the Good Part about discussing how to be a more environmental citizen and how to live a more sustainable lifestyle?” Students in this video will be sharing stories around what it means to have their voices valued. What it is like to go on a community walks with community partners and municipal partners. While sharing how they have been personally impacted from this experience and what they think the good part has been about the work we have been doing.
Through a compilation of multiple explanations to each question. This video displays some of the students’ theories that were shared in this process. Renaissance students in this group were able to use TikTok social media platform to spread awareness and educate future viewers on how to tackle the questions above.
