The Economist Educational Foundation
The world is facing a climate crisis. In November, world leaders met at COP26 in the Scottish city of Glasgow to discuss what to do. But what decisions must they make? Who do the decisions affect? And whose voices should be heard in the decision-making process?
In this scheme of work, students explore questions such as:
- What are the difficulties of decision-making in a crisis?
- Why are different perspectives important when making decisions?
- What’s more important for COP26: urgency or inclusivity?
- Should all perspectives be equal at COP26?
