Exploring Identity & Environment

This brand new cross-curricular programme for Key Stage 3 gives students the opportunity to discover how humans express their cultural identities and interact with the natural world. Your class will learn more about the indigenous peoples of the Arctic – from their traditions, tools and spiritual practices, to the importance of the polar wildlife around them. They will learn how climate change and global conservation efforts affect indigenous peoples and animals in the Arctic, and how the way forward is not always clear-cut. The students will also visit the art galleries and discover how artists explored their cultural identity closer to home, by painting the landscape and people of the west of Ireland.

Finally, there will be an opportunity for pupils to reflect on how their own cultural identities are linked to the world around them and consider how they can have a positive impact on both local and global issues.
