During Youth Work Ireland’s Consensus Process 2019, young people told us that the environment and climate change were key issues they wanted to learn more about and campaign for change on. Currently it is young people who are leading the way in highlightening the need to combat climate change, and acting to ensure the environment is protected for all generations.
The My Planet My Pledge activity pack was originally developed as a resource to be done in a group work setting, however with the COVID-19 outbreak and youth groups now meeting online, it has been adapted to be delivered as an online resource. The activities can be done without too much preparation or materials and can be delivered by both youth workers and volunteers.
The pack is available in 2 formats – as an interactive pdf with click through links (below image) or on this website with individual activity pages , again with click through links www.youthworkireland.ie/myplanetmypledge
The last activity invites young people to commit to a pledge they will take to make the world a better place for all, it would be great if services could incorporate this into their social media feeds with images and videos of young people’s pledges #myplanetmypledge
