The climate is changing! How can you show your students the impact it can have beyond their backyard? With InSight, the latest project from the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation, of course! In this activity you'll get to view a 360-degree video about the Great Green Wall in northern Africa, the impacts of desertification on soill and the climate, and how they can affect women and girls in Senegal. This workshop will include hands on, STEAM activities to help students see the role they can play in preventing climate change. InSight is a province wide initiative; participants will have the opportunity to apply to host future workshops at their schools!
