The 90-minute conference will be broadcast on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 10:00AM EST, live from Boston, Paris and Copenhagen. You can find it on the web at www.astc.org/iglo, where you will be directed to the streaming video.
What you can do:
- Make this part of a local event
- Show the video conference in your venue in front of an audience
- Invite local experts to discuss similar topics before or after with your audience
- Capture local reactions and ask a question through the chat box. An expert in one of the locations will answer on-line
- Add a guided tour to your climate exhibition
- Use the archived session for a later event during COP15
- Use the IGLO toolkit to set up interactive hands-on activities on climate
- Let us know in advance so that we can list you as a participating sites
- Send ASTC/IGLO with pictures so that we can publish them on the web site.
We are very proud that IGLO has been able to offer a free tool of that quality. The game is on-line, so any science center or individual can start playing it, and there are several ways you can be a part of ASTC’s presence at COP15:
1. You can organize a Clim’City event at your organization:
- Inviting a class or group of students (15 to 18 years of age) to gather in the science center, preferably during the first week of COP15.
- Give a short introduction on global warming and COP15 (include a visit of an exhibition on the topic, if you have one).
- Provide instructions on how to play the game (it’s ideal if some of your staff have tried it before).
- Let the kids play the game. You can encourage dialog and interaction either by projecting on a big screen and asking the group to contribute to each stage or having as many computers as you can with students forming teams of two.
- Close by uploading your best result (request a code if you participate in our event).
- Discuss with the students how you would address some of the issues the panel will be discussing during our Transatlantic Conference (see above).
2. Connect or record the video conference on 12/14 and use it for later event.
3. Make pictures and send them to us with comments about your experience.
