A program for very young architects

In these sessions we’re going to talk about the ways humans live and build on the planet Earth. Because our actions are driving climate change, we must take immediate action to re-imagine our building designs, construction, and energy use so that everyone on the planet is able to live safely.

Here’s where architects play an important role, and where children can help, too! Architecture Playshop is a series of workshops for children that introduce key language and concepts concerning building design, construction, and climate change. Throughout the playshops, participants will learn, dream, and do to move towards climate action.

In Session One, we'll explore how city spaces are put together, and how we can use clean energy, dense design, and weather-friendly building to mitigate and manage climate change.

Session Two will investigate how we can use local, sustainable materials when we build to support the health of the Earth.

In Session Three, we'll examine the planet’s rising water levels and imagine how we can build better cities to deal with surging seas.

Developing critical literacy with young children around climate change, forced migration and the built environment

Overview

Education for environmental justice must begin early, as children are disproportionately affected by issues of climate change and forced displacement. However, questions of architecture are often overlooked in children’s education, despite the fact that the built environment is an indirect contributor to climate change, and architects must develop new visions to mitigate these effects on vulnerable populations.

Architecture Playshop is a creative workshop for children that encourages guided and play-based learning. Through it, we seek to learn from children, build their awareness about the role of architecture in climate change, and plant the seeds of future action they can implement as adults.

The sessions are organised around the following topics: building materials and embodied environmental impact; climate change and urbanisation; rising sea levels and adapting how we live in coastal areas; and forced migration and dignified accommodation.

Our overarching intention is to have children recognize themselves as builders and designers, and to see themselves as future architects who can contribute to imaginative, sustainable design in the fight against climate change.
