Are you the next Y-Adapt facilitator?

Y-Adapt is a curriculum for young people consisting of games and playful activities (see full website).

It helps them to both understand climate change and to take practical action to adapt to the changing climate in their community. These actions are local interventions that reduce the impacts of extreme-weather events. These can be rapid-onset events such as heavy rain leading to flooding, or slow-onset events such as extreme heat and drought.

The curriculum is broken down into seven sessions, each with a different goal.

Session 1 – Introduction

Session 2 – Climate Change Challenge

Session 3 – Map the Hazard

Session 4 – See the System

Session 5 – Act to Adapt

Session 6 – Choose your challenge

Session 7 – Join the Y-Adapt community

Specialist Session – Experience the Environment

Facilitating the sessions will require some practice, but we have created facilition videos to help you prepare. You can find them here.
