My Green City: Producing a City Charter (L4)

The final lesson in 'My Green City’ gets down to the nitty gritty. What use is a beautifully built city without a charter? Pupils explore how charters can change cities for the better.

Pupils will recognise historical charters and how they shaped cities in the past and how new charters can change cities for the future. They will consider themes that a city needs to survive: energy, food, natural areas, transport and waste handling, and after discussing each one they will determine how it works in their city before presenting a decorated city charter, in keeping with historical documents, to the class.
