Naming Climate Impacts and climate justice

Time: 45+ minutes Group Size: 15+ people

What you need: Simple icon designs representative of different climate impacts. Map of the region in question. Flipchart papers and markers. 

 

Aims: Have a general overview of the climate impacts in one country or locality| Use the situation to amplify your message widely | Build resistance with resilient communities 

 

Mapping vulnerabilities: Ask people to mark themselves in the map (where they live). Ask them to share stories about changes they have experienced regarding climate issues and if their localities have suffered any climate impact. Group all the climate impacts that each location is vulnerable to, so all the risks and impacts become visible.
