“Saving Spaceship Earth” (English version)

This workshop was presented in a secondary school in Radzionkow, Poland  in January 2014.  I would like to share the materials which are now all in English, although I used a combination of English and Polish with the thirty 17-year old students who attended the 90-minute session, inserted into their geography course.  These links are to the material that I am happy to make available for CASE followers to adapt for their own use. Follow-up from the workshop is now under way with a group of ten of the students and their geography teacher who are planning a project to make an ‘ecological map’ of their small town Radzionkow in Upper Silesia and set up a local website in collaboration with the town council. A conference in the town in May 2014 will add to this community action. A version of the powerpoint presentation will be presented to other students, teachers and townsfolk at that conference.
