XR Glos at Cheltenham Science festival = help be the change

Cheltenham science festival banner that says be the change.

Here’s a message from our friends at XR Glos:

Through various connections XR Glos has been given an unprecedented opportunity to have a presence at this year’s Cheltenham Science Festival with a two table stall in the Discover Zone, Tues 7th to Sun 12th June, but we need YOUR help to make it as impactful as we can…

Primary catalysts are XR Cheltenham with help from around the XR Gloucestershire community & plans are coming together with support from XR Scientists and other members of our community.

The main attendees are up to 17,000 school children over the course of the event, plus their grown ups, plus many other companies exhibiting.

We have plans to encourage everyone to “Be the Change” by playing our “Climate Justice Game”, speaking with XR Scientists, learning how to block print Patches and more besides. 

We have an urgent need for anyone who can help with preparations and a rota for people who just want to come along & participate during the actual event days, mostly 10-5, with 2 late nights on Thursday (7.30) and Friday (10pm).

We would especially like to hear from anyone who has experience interacting with school children to talk with them about Climate Change Science and encourage them to learn and ask those awkward questions that will help tilt things towards getting on track to reduce consumption & re-generate our world.

So, please step forward, it will be fun! Contact rose@chameleongardens.co.uk to find out more.
