The Climate Concern tree
at Landbeach Church Christmas Tree Festival
(Near Cambridge UK)
With a large number of Christmas Tree Festivals in the UK and many other places here’s an idea that uses CLIMERICKS as a way of starting Climate Concern conversations.
With the encouragement of a friend to make a display in a 40-ChristmasTree festival, I worked out that it might be possible to decorate a recycled cardboard tree with CLIMERICKS, suitably designed for the season. You can see the outcome above. The cards are straightforward insofar as they are A6 in size so can be printed out 4 to a page on light card or fairly heavy paper. There are several websites that offer free borders and each card can feature either one of the growing collection of verses on this site: OR, better, this is an opportunity for you and/ or some members of an organisation who want to express their support for much greater impetus in climate change mitigation initiatives CAN PERHAPS WRITE THEIR OWN.
Here’s a specimen sheet using four of the CLIMERICKS already on the site, which have some relevance to Christmas in the 21st century.
