How the climate crisis is impacting educators and teachers

Posted by Meg Baker

UCU is committed to engaging members with calling on their employers to take action on climate change. UCU recognises that climate change is a justice issue and if we are to address the climate crisis, we need to do this with justice as a central pillar. With this, is the need for a Just Transition for workers to a green economy.

This project/ opportunity aims to draw together case studies and examples of where teachers/educators globally are already being impacted by the consequences of the climate crisis. It aims to raise awareness across the trade union movement of how the climate crisis is an issue effecting workers and workers' rights, therefore highlighting the fact that the climate crisis is a trade union issue. By compiling case studies of examples exemplifying this, it is hoped that engagement with calling on employers to take action in addressing the climate crisis will increase and the importance of this issue will become all the more apparent to trade union members.

It may be that this is carried out by one student, or a small group of students working together.

UCU will provide leads for contacts to reach out for identifying case studies. You will also be supported with the framing for the video/ short film.

It is possible for students to divide the tasks for this project up, therefore you may have skills for video editing/ creation, whilst someone else may be able to take a lead on gathering the case studies.

Videographer for ‘Down the Lens’

Posted by Emily

'Down the Lens' is an online drama session for children and adults with learning difficulties and additional complex needs. I currently upload the footage onto Imovie and attempt to edit the videos myself - adding subtitles and limited effects which the participants ask for. However, the quality is not that good. I would really like to create a showreel for each participant that showcases the amazing work they have created over the past 18 months. I would like the editing to look professional and be of a standard that I can upload onto my website, which is currently been made.

I have recently received funding from Unltd, so this opportunity will be paid.

If the collaboration is successful, then the offer the individual to work alongside me more frequently will be available.

Kindest regards,

Emily
