Avon network spring update
(23/05/22)
Posted by : Avon Schools Eco Network

Arran Kinnear, a guest speaker, talked about a film he made and entered into the RCUSU Science Challenge. This Film is about ocean fertilization, which encourages more phytoplankton so that it’s photosynthesis can offset carbon emissions.  

 

Regarding this, we are looking to plan and shoot a short film based around ‘Changing the Narrative’ aimed at spreading positive news and enabling action, using a sponsorship for equipment. Other ongoing filming projects include making a short film inspired by the play: “The World We Made” ASEN has gotten rights for by author Jonathan Porritt. Film interviews around this will summarize ASSEN and encourage people to join. 

 

We’ve reached out to Holly Berry, a young climate activist mentor, who has worked with Greenpeace + local eco groups, who spoke at our meetings and told us about her experiences and work as a mentor. There are no current campaigns planned with holly, though we are looking to plan some. 

 

Some members underwent the three-week course from Force for Nature, an organization passionate about mobilizing mindsets for climate actions by tackling Eco-anxiety. Force of Nature facilitates incredible opportunities and connections that help support youth activisms, and provides gateways to futures in public speaking, business and media content creating. 

 

We’ve supported a Youth Climate Conference in Bath in late March, set up by three of our members through their school. The event aimed to bring awareness and invites students to the Avon Schools network.

We tried to plan a litter pick -our latest ideas were using a hydrogen powered ferry in Bristol docks to do so, though couldn’t find a date for this. 

We’ve been working towards the Bath Climate and Biodiversity Festival in September and are currently working towards a student-lead spoken word poetry event or live music event. Other events include interactive art pieces all age groups can contribute to, and a campaign event surrounding the festival.
