Climate Strike and Art Activism - Create Your Story

Ask a Question

  • This guide will help students create a poster for a climate strike or demonstration.
  • This guide is specifically for the 2019 youth-led climate strike on September 20, 2019, but you could simply adapt this guide for any future demonstrations or activities.
Teaching Tips


  • This could be used to introduce students to the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • The student worksheet helps the student create a story in six words or less.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Since students are now moving towards digital art, an adaptation would be to use Canva, an easy-to-use online design and publishing tool.
  • If so, teachers might want to learn how to use the tool before hand.
  • Teachers need to create a free account to access the materials.


  • This activity can be a good culminating assessment for students to connect what they learn in the classroom to a global event in order to exercise climate action.
  • This activity can be more thoughtfully done by examining communication techniques and media messages from Project Look Sharp.
  • In order for students to think about impact, you could have a follow-up activity after they participate in or observe a climate strike and then reflect on the effects of global movements.
  • Other resources related to climate solutions and individual actions include this video to future generations, this foodprint calculator, and this video from the Years Project.
