In the tradition of chautauqua, an adult education movement popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, the Paulo Freire Freedom School – Downtown 6th and 7th grade students will be sharing their learning, insights, fears and hopes at a public exhibition on December 15th. The night will be divided into three parts:

Act 2 Part 1 – Voices of anger and despair from the future. Students will deliver from a future perspective of a community that has been devastated by climate change. It will reference science and needs to be thoroughly grounded in research. Products could include poetry, monologue dance etc.
Act 2 Part 2 – Voices of empowerment from the future. An uplifting end to the event in which student will again present from a future perspective, but this time to thank the current 2015 generation for their efforts in recognizing and acting on climate change.
