Summary:In this activity, students will be acting as members of the UN Climate Council and will be working within teams to identify and address the major factors behind climate change. Students are instructed to identify three major factors of climate change through research. They then have to identify ways to help reduce the impact these factors have on climate change keeping in mine social, economic, and environmental impacts of those solutions. They will use the C-Learn model to see if the solutions they develop will redce the impact on climate change as they predicted.
