Spreading the word

Many people seem to have no idea of the impact of driving a car on our planet. What can we do to change people's mindsets?

Task: How can you get the message out to people that they need to stop driving cars? Could you create a video, a leaflet a website, an event? Work out how you can talk to people to persuade them not to drive. How would you approach the conversation in order to have the most successful outcome? Discuss in groups and come up with a plan of action.
