Save Our Environment
1. What is climate change and how is it affecting us?
2. Why is it important for students to understand climate change?
3. Do you think Greta Thunberg’s initiative #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike is helping climate change? Why or why not?
4. Would you #ClimateStrike? Who would support you? What barriers/ challenges might you encounter?
5.What kinds of things are you, or others doing to help the environment?
*These same 5 questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. Where necessary, questions have been reworded for younger Tweeters. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.
