Climate change has begun to shape everyday life. But there are lots of choices about how we address climate change ourselves which may feel daunting. So pop along to the stall to explore those choices through art and play. Try your luck at our carbon cutting puzzle or purchase fictional carbon offsetting shares. Learn more from our Communicating Climate Risk Toolkit and hear from young entrepreneurs in Uganda on how to cut CO2 in one go.

Explore the work of Ugandan writer and filmmaker Dilman Dila, who teamed up with UK based games designer Jo Lindsay Walton, to create innovative educational activities about climate action. Learn about new technologies such as Negative Emission Technologies (or NETs), which promise to take carbon out of the atmosphere. What are the scientific and economic uncertainties associated with NETs? What might NETs mean for relationships between the developed and the developing world? What risks are there of increasing indebtedness and other forms of dependencies (e.g. through land concessions) in the Global South?

This event is suitable for ages 12+.
