Our team took action by creating a video inspired by a dialogue from our favourite play by William Shakespeare: A Midsummers Night Dream. Our video starred a climate change denier (Puck), and a climate activist (fairy). We incorporated information we learned from our SLC packs (climate justice and nature's rights), such as, how the more vulnerable are affected the most by climate change, to treat nature the same way we would like to be treated, etc. At the end of our skit, the climate change denier (Puck), goes through a complete transformation regarding his beliefs about climate change. We hope when others watch our video, they learn a bit more about climate justice and nature's rights than they originally knew.
