Protect the Planet
A group of Geology postgraduates are educating young people about the potentially devastating impact of climate change in a way that others their age can understand.
Twenty-two-year-old Pamela Rattigan and her team feel that highlighting the effects of global warming will encourage people to play their part in protecting the planet.
With Fixers, they've produced a poster campaign, which shows how the phenomenon is impacting the world and what others can do to stop it.
‘We are all passionate about understanding our Earth and communicating the science behind it,’ explains Pamela from Greenock, Scotland.
‘There are often conflicting reports in the media about the severity of climate change, but it’s something we cannot ignore.
‘Our mission is to educate young people by talking about the topic. This way, they will understand the subject a bit better and be in a position to make informed decisions in the future.’

The group plans to distribute their posters in local schools, colleges and universities.
Pamela says: ‘There are a lot of misinformed reports about climate change, which is what we’re actively trying to combat.
‘We hope our campaign will make the subject accessible for everyone so they understand the issue and do something about it.’
