One of the major aims of the CCPC project was to explore innovative way of communicating climate change to young people. Our young participants came from different countries, with different backgrounds, and varying levels of knowledge of climate change.
How to ensure that all had basic information before their trip to Solta?
We decided to create a Facebook group just for the CC PC participants so they can feel free to chat informally and to learn some facts they need to know in a non-formal way. This way they began to think of themselves as a group before actually meeting in Croatia.
Finally we asked the participants to do an informal assignment – on the group to suggest “little gestures” that could be done every day to reduce their impact on the environment.
