What does the future hold, and how can we ensure young people feel empowered to make change? Using comics and popular culture to help visualise the future, this workshop for learners 14 and up will help spell out the options. Items from the Brotherton Special Collections will be used to generate discussion and provide inspiration for a hopeful future. Participants will be invited to draw their own pictures and write their own stories; all will receive a free copy of the new graphic novel A Dream of a Low Carbon Future, which launches in November. Researchers on climate change from the Priestley International Centre for Climate and engineers from the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Bioenergy will be on hand to provide scientific expertise.
