North East theatre company Cap-a-Pie have embarked on a cross-generational campaign to bring the message of climate change to audiences with their new six-part online series, Climate Change Catastrophe!, available on YouTube from Wednesday 12th May. Made by children for grown-ups, the series will be an eye-opening experience addressing the relevant issues of climate change, all from the perspectives of the next generation.

Teaming up with Newcastle University climate scientists and engineers, singer-songwriter Katie Doherty and Cap-a-Pie engaged primary school children to provide encouraging perspectives on a subject that is incredibly important. Seeing the imaginative ideas devised by these kids come to life will be both entertaining and heart-warming – and you might learn a whole lot more about climate change than you knew before.

Cap-a-Pie’s artistic director Brad McCormik says: “It’s one of the biggest issues of our time and will affect us all, but it’s the younger generation who will bear the brunt so we felt it would be interesting and useful to get their perspectives and to broaden their understanding of climate science and engineering solutions from people with real expertise.”

Climate Change Catastrophe! will be available via Cap-a-Pie’s YouTube channel from Wednesday 12th May
