The Climate Warming (Ban Flying) Debate Kit was funded by the Royal Institution, IBM, Lloyd’s Register Foundation, and UK Research and Innovation. It was produced alongside the CHRISTMAS LECTURES Zone, in partnership with the 2020 RI CHRISTMAS LECTURES series: Planet Earth: A User’s Guide.

The Climate Warming Debate Kit asks the question: Should flying be banned for ten years?

The Kit was distributed from March 2021, and evaluated during December 2021 and January 2022.


  • We estimate that at least 221 Debate Kits have been used with students.
  • Feedback from teachers who have used the Kit is highly positive. Teachers value the ways in which the Kit links to the curriculum, provides varied perspectives around the issue, and encourages students’ lateral thinking.
  • Every teacher responding to the feedback survey, reported that they intend to use the Debate Kit again.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has had significant and ongoing impacts on schools and teaching. Teacher feedback across our projects indicates a need to focus on the core curriculum due to lost time from school closures, students isolating, and navigating changing restrictions. This is reflected in feedback we have received which indicates that many teachers have not yet had time to make use of the Kit.
  • 75% of teachers who told us they haven’t yet used the Kit report that they intend to use it in the future.
