Down To Earth Schools Drama Project 2010 was developed by Scene Change Theatre company in partnership with CMS and Arocha UK. The 1990 Kyoto agreement challenges participating countries to cut their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 5.2% by 2012. The need for goverments to agree a new set of targets remains & time is running out. This project put children at the heart of the issue and this booklet documents photos and comments of this experience.
