Climate Quest - 'what3words' takes you where...?
Welcome to another part of ALIenergy's Climate Quest for Autumn 2021. This supports the series of workshops delivered at high schools in Tarbert, Campbeltown and Lochgilphead in September/October and forms part of our efforts to celebrate the year of COP26, happening in Glasgow from 31st October to 12th November 2021.
In this latest Climate Quest challenge we're asking the three schools we work most closely with to encourage their pupils to get out and about in the local area on the hunt for features of the landscape that are connected to climate change, and the work that's already being done to tackle it. By simply taking a walk around their hometown, with just some clues, a phone, some curiosity AND a parent, carer or friend(s) for safety, we're aiming to support these young people's interest in how renewable and climate-friendly technologies can be seen, right on our doorsteps here in Argyll.
The activity makes use the what3words app/website, allowing pupils who participate to find, identify and think about each of five specially chosen sites in their local area. As well as taking a photo when they get to each location (and later sending this to ALIenergy), visiting each one is a chance to investigate and explore further - either in school or at home - questions like:
- What was found at each site?
- Who put it there and why?
- How does it help build a more sustainable low carbon future?
If you are a teacher or pupil from Campbeltown, Lochgilphead or Tarbert and want to find out more, please get in touch with ALIenergy's Education Officers: Caroline Cuddihy (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Michael Wall (email@example.com).
