SLACC – Stop Lies Against Climate Change

… climate change is not man-made. The climate has always been changing after all. Climate change is a lie to promote certain interests …. There is a huge stream of disinformation and fake news aimed at confusing public opinion and raising doubts about the existence of climate change. This is where the SLACC project comes into play. SLACC aims to equip young people with the necessary skills to specifically tackle climate lies and act as climate ambassadors. To this end, interactive exercises, a gamified platform and a learning App were develop.

Challenge Tackled

Young people are acting as climate ambassadors to fight climate lies and encourage other (older) generations to adopt climate-friendly lifestyles.

Target group, beneficiaries or clients

Educators and youth workers

Young people

Solution

SLACC gamified training activities and App: Young people will be trained to become climate ambassadors - people who are critical of climate lies, who can make arguments to debunk them, and who can make their voices heard, persuade others and ultimately get others to act in a climate-friendly way.

Innovation

Young people are empowered to become climate ambassadors who 'educate' other (older) generations.

Unique Selling Point

SLACC combines online (gamification) approaches with face-to-face methodologies to empower young people in a playful and interactive way.

Impact

The mobile app and learning activities will empower young people to expose distorted facts and populist distortions among their parents and grandparents and motivate them to live more climate-consciously.

Feasibility/Transferability

SLACC can be used with many different groups – the project addresses youth workers and young people, but already in the piloting phase the activities have been implemented with e.g. high school students, young people, migrants … in all kind of courses.
