Through the #2050Challenge researchers, industry professionals and scientists from all walks of life have been sharing the ways in which they are working to tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and achieve ‘net zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050. Each person who has taken part in the challenge has provided a 70 second video, highlighting a specific issue in 20 seconds, and then using the remaining 50 seconds to describe their work, research, or actions to help overcome it.
Watch one of our Partnership Grant teachers, Meryl Batchelder, in her #2050Challenge video about why she feels it is important to have environmental issues at the heart of the curriculum.
Find out how to get involved and share a video from your school via social media using #2050Challenge. We are keen for teachers and students to share their research from any school based climate or biodiversity based projects - such as those undertaken via the Tomorrow's climate scientists scheme - to ensure their voice is heard as part of the scientific community.
Below is a small sample of videos that have been posted on social media for the challenge. This small sample has been picked for their broad links to science topics within the curriculum and to show the breadth of subjects and scientists featured in the challenge so far. Do search #2050challenge on Facebook or Twitter to view all the videos posted.
