Air Pollution Citizens Assembly Lesson Plan
This lesson plan is designed to introduce students to their mission: to think about and compare a range of different solutions, voting on their priorities for change.
Years: 7, 8, 9
1 in 8 deaths are due to air pollution - and yet human and planetary health are not at the heart of political decision-making. In this Top Trumps style game, students will be able to hold their own Citizens Assembly to explore the trade-offs we make when taking decisions about our health and that of the environment. They will learn the science of air pollution and carbon emissions, discover the solutions that exist and vote what they, as a group, want to prioritise and work on to improve air quality in our towns and cities.
