Are there two sides to the sustainability debate?

In this lesson students debate topics related to health and sustainability, such as whether we should all follow a 'climatarian diet', move to electric vehicles, ban plastic or invest more in green spaces. Students should build skills in using rhetorical devices and constructing an argument, alongside exploring differing opinions and ideas around each topic, helping them form their own ideas and consider how they will make a difference in their own lives.
