Get Creative For Climate Justice

Use your creativity to demand the UK is a climate justice leader.

Climate breakdown is the most urgent crisis facing our world. What's often overlooked is that it's also a human rights crisis, affecting inequality and justice across the globe.

In ‘Get Creative for Climate Justice’, young people creatively express their hopes for climate justice and present their work to their school community and local elected representatives in a school exhibition.

Then schools submit exhibits for the ‘Creative for the Climate’ exhibition in the Houses of Parliament. This will take place as soon as possible following the General Election (date to be confirmed).

The first ‘Creative for the Climate’ exhibition took place in the Houses of Parliament on 6 December 2023. The Attlee Suite was transformed into an art gallery for the day as young tour guides from participating schools showed MPs around, discussed climate justice with them and called for action.

You may hold your school exhibition at any time during the year. However, the deadline to submit exhibits for the exhibition in Parliament this year will be Friday 29 November 2024.

If you'd like your school to take part, please email John McLaverty, Oxfam Youth Campaigner.

Get Creative for Climate Justice is jointly organised by CAFOD, Christian Aid, Oxfam, the Royal Society of Literature, Save the Children and Send My Friend To School with the support of the Climate Coalition.

The project documents below are currently being updated for 2024.

We've also put together teaching resources to help young people learn about the human element of the climate crisis and inspire them to take action for climate justice.
