About the Wall

The WoW project grew out of a project undertaken by students of the Climate Academy at EEBII school in Brussels in 2019.

Inspired by Norman Rockwell’s ‘The Right to Know’ (1968), students designed and created a mural in the grounds of their school evoking the rights of young people who will be worst affected by the consequences of climate change.

The ERASMUS-funded WoW project builds on this and provides a wide range of ideas and resources to schools, including soft activism projects like mural painting, to provide a focus for integrating climate issues into their teaching and learning.

All resources are available free on this website. You can follow the programme through the year or pick and choose the parts that are most useful for your teaching or learning.

WoW is a collaboration between the Climate Academy, News Decoder and Global Youth and News Media, funded by ERASMUS+.
