Communicating climate risks to schoolchildren through competitions and songs

The Can Tho researching group focused on the concerns of school children with respect to climate change by utilizing fun and interactive communication tools involving songs and flash mob competitions. Children were taught about climate change issues and how they relate their own communities. More specifically, researchers were interested on how the children saw climate change affecting them in the future. The ultimate goal of the initiative was to assess how Climate Change and associated uncertainty can be communicated most effectively without the message losing its credibility.
