Creating Our Sustainable Future

Thursday 7 November 2019

Queen’s University Belfast, Canada Room and Council Chamber, Lanyon Building, University Road, Belfast BT7 1NN

An interactive workshop that will allow participants to engage creatively with climate action and ideas for a greener, sustainable future.

Climate breakdown is one of the biggest issues facing our socio–ecological world. The complexity of the climate issues facing our planet can often leave us wondering what we can do, and where to even begin. ‘Creating our Sustainable Future’ is an interactive workshop which offers participants the opportunity to consider these pressing socio–ecological issues in a hands–on, stimulating environment.

Opening with a short quiz, participants will work together to share their knowledge of the environment and society (eco–prizes are available for winners). Through discussion, group work, and engaging with ‘Anna’s Journey’ (a new short play about unsustainability co–written and performed by QUB staff and students), participants will discuss climate breakdown and other related environmental degradation and socio–economic inequalities; examining causes, consequences and alternatives to help us move towards a sustainable future.

Facilitated by staff and students from across the University, participants will work in small groups to create a piece of art (visual, poetry, storytelling, etc.) to communicate their vision for a greener, healthier and sustainable future; using the UN Sustainable Development Goals and pressing environmental and social issues as inspiration. The workshop will conclude with a discussion and refreshments.
