The simulation exists as a stand-alone program that can be adapted by groups to educate participants about the effects of Climate Change on women in the developing world.
In a 20-minute interaction, participants experience:
- How Climate Change leads to increased hunger;
- When Climate change harms farming, families to have less money and food and sink deeper into poverty;
- As climate change gets worse, women make a choice: stay and hope that things get better or take their chances by migrating.
- Options for reflection, through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching, on the impact of Climate Change on women in the Global South;
- An opportunity to engage in advocacy.
The three headings below give essential background on the issues (LEARN), instructions on how to set up the simulation (PLAN), and resources for reflection, prayer, and advocacy (REFLECT & ADVOCATE).
This simulation was created by Cabrini University students in Fall 2022.
