Over the last year, we have been working on developing a new immersive experience to sit alongside The Poverty Trap and Desperate Journeys. Named ‘The High Life’ it focuses on climate justice and the impact of global climate change. It is designed to be as flexible as possible with multiple options of delivery, to reflect new modes of working. These include in-person delivery by Empathy Action and the provision of a resource pack which can be used without our input.
‘The High Life’ includes the following elements:
- It portrays daily life in two different countries, with participants divided between them.
- It highlights how excessive consumption and waste in more economically developed countries impacts life chances in less economically developed countries.
- Afterwards the participants meet to reflect on their experience and decisions.
- Participants are encouraged to consider what action they personally will take to play some part in helping to combat climate change and reduce climate injustice.
The whole programme can be conducted within 2 hours.
We plan to launch this experience in the Summer and we’d love to hear from you now if you’re interested in taking part or even running a pilot next term.
