With all that you hear on the news, in school, and on social media, climate change can seem like an overwhelming and insurmountable challenge. This is an opportunity to learn about cutting edge climate research and respond creatively, to express some of the thoughts, feelings and emotions that the science inspires.

In this session, you will meet and interview climate change researchers from the University of Oxford. You will then have the opportunity to respond through a group drama exercise to create a short performance inspired by what you've learnt. In the final part of the workshop, we'll experiment with adding music to your ideas.
