Fumes or Futures assemblies

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time.

The materials could be used for a one-off assembly focusing on climate change, or as a series in which the themes are developed over the course of a week. You can use them alone, or as part of the Fumes or Futures pack, which includes games, case studies and teaching ideas.

Fumes or Futures chatterbox

Use our Fumes or Futures chatterbox to engage your pupils and help spread awareness of climate change.  The first level of the chatterbox shows the kind of natural disasters that are happening more often because of climate change. The second level suggests actions that that can help cut carbon emissions, and the last level explains what effect taking action could have. Space (in the dotted area) has been left for you to write in one of your own ideas about an action that could help reduce carbon emissions. Space (in the striped area) has been left for you to write in what effect that action could have.

Tackling violence, building peace: global strategy 2016

Violence and conflict affects almost one fifth of the world’s population or 1.5 billion people. The daily fear, uncertainty and suffering borne by people living through violent conflicts in countries such as Syria, Iraq and South Sudan is immeasurable and unimaginable. The war in Syria, has contributed to the highest number of displaced people since World War II; nearly five million having fled its bombs and bullets. Meanwhile, the catastrophe continues for people trapped in besieged villages across Syria and Iraq. Other countries like Colombia are striving to end protracted conflicts and push peace over the line. Today, one in every 122 people is now a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum, and the cost of world military spending is said to be nearly 250 times more than is spent on peace building. Christian Aid has adopted ‘Tackling Violence, Building Peace,’ as a strategic priority to address these critical trends and because we know that human development cannot be achieved without tackling violence. Seventy years after Christian Aid’s establishment, the root causes and levels of violence in poor communities where we work persists, often at higher levels and irrespective of whether those communities are ‘at war’ or not. Most of the world’s poorest people live outside of any form of protection and remain vulnerable to war and conflict, violent criminal organisations, gender-based violence, police abuse, forced labour and violent theft of land and other assets on a daily basis. People who do not have a safe place to call home, reliable access to food and an income because of violence, cannot plan for the future. Communities living through daily violence cannot thrive. And children who are forced to leave school because of violence are denied a chance at their hopes and dreams. Women and girls are also increasingly subject to physical and sexual violence, a harrowing result of gender inequality. Conflict is complex and even when peace comes, it does not always signal an end to violence. It can mark a shift from militarised conflict to widespread social conflict. For example, in Central America more people die violently today due to crime than during the civil wars of Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua combined. Our new strategy underpins our commitment to tackle violence and to promote just and lasting peace and security where we work. The strategy is deeply informed by our work in countries across the globe and reflects the aspirations and vision of our local partners. Peace is both an end in itself and a prerequisite for development. ‘Tackling Violence, Building Peace’ is our pledge to work tirelessly and collectively towards a safer future that secures justice and human rights for all.

Crazy Climate facts activity sheet

Age: 7-11 A range of classroom activities based around these Crazy Climate facts. Pupils can: Put the facts into groups under headings like: reduce, recycle, reuse, save water, save energy, reduce CO2. You can also think of your own headings or sort them into problems and actions. Choose a fact. Work in pairs or small groups to think of ways to tell the rest of your school about the fact you have chosen. What do you think is the best way to do this? You could perform a play or assembly, or make a poster, a PowerPoint presentation or even a film. Make a tally chart to record your activities over a week that emit CO2, eg car journeys, hours watching TV, how long you charge your mobile phone for, etc. Plot your results on a graph to show your carbon footprint. Design and carry out a survey of your classmates to find out how eco-friendly they are.
