      Odyssey 2050

      Many important movies are being made about climate change but few are aimed at young audiences. The Odyssey 2050 project is different as it is aimed at raising awareness among young people worldwide of the need to prevent dangerous climate change. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office invites young people around the world to participate in the making of an animated feature film, under the guidance of the artistic director in the production of 'Avatar'.

      Topic: Climate change

      Age: Teenage

      Level: B2/C1

      Timing: 45 minutes - but with additional materials available

      Aims:

      • To introduce learners to the film and provide classes with a stimulus for making their own contributions to the Odyssey 2050 project and encouraging them to examine their own and classmates’ feelings about climate change
      • To provide learners with an opportunity to express and justify their opinions with regards to what actions can be taken to prevent climate change
