Using the arts to explore the effect climate change is having on Norfolk’s endangered insects.
A student-run club at UEA aims to empower people, particularly young people, to use creative outlets to inspire discussions on important scientific topics such as climate change. UEA science and creative writing students have designed three templates for young people to participate in, raising their aspirations as citizen scientists and confidence in their voice to make a difference with climate change awareness.

UEA students hope this project will raise awareness of how insects are in danger of becoming extinct due to habitat loss caused by climate change and other environmental factors, as well as celebrate the importance of insects for a healthy planet.

Resources for schools and home schooled children are available on UEA Project Change website. Click on MORE INFO below.
