This lesson plan for teachers of teenagers at level B2/C1 and above explores the theme of climate change. Students will be introduced to the film Odyssey 2050 and have an opportunity to express and justify their opinions about climate change.


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'.
