A 6 part series of lessons on the history and development of the environmental movement.

The lessons look at:

• Apollo 8 and the Moonrise photo
• Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring”
• The Montreal Protocol 1987 (The Ozone agreement)
• The Paris Climate Agreement 2015
• The global development of Green political movements
• The global development of environmental activism


Each lesson is self contained, with all the resources required at the end of the PowerPoint. They are brilliant for a case study at the end of Year 9 History or for a higher level study of politics.

We hope they help.
