Screening Toolkit

Welcome to the Temperature Rising
Impact Screening Toolkit!

Our goal is to engage viewers and gather crucial insights that will empower our campaign to address the pressing issue of climate change in Southern Africa. 

This toolkit is designed to help us understand how climate change is affecting you, your community, and your daily life. By using this toolkit, you’ll contribute valuable information that will shape our strategies and advocacy efforts. Your responses will help us highlight the most significant challenges and develop targeted solutions that make a real difference. 

Join us in this vital effort to protect our planet for future generations! Together, we can create meaningful change.

Facilitators Guide

This guide will equip facilitators with the knowledge to plan and host screenings, and provides tools and guiding questions to stimulate debate and discussion amongst diverse audiences and age groups.

What does it mean to Decarbonise?

Decarbonisation is increasingly being discussed across the globe. But what exactly does it mean and how can we do it? As part of the Hotspot Series, South African activist Gabriel Klaasen simply explains what it means and why it’s more necessary than ever.


What is Fair Climate Finance?

Poorer countries are likely to struggle most with the impact of climate change. Rich and developed nations have already benefited from cheap dirty energy. Fair climate finance acknowledges this imbalances and structures the finance needed to deal with the impact of climate change accordingly.


Who pays for Climate Change Loss and Damage?

Climate change effects the entire planet, but our capacity to deal with it effects are not equal. Kumi Naidoo discusses how wealthier nations are better able to mitigate the consequences of climate change while poorer countries are left to suffer loss and damage.


Who Should Own Energy Production?

We need to transition away from carbon based energy production as quickly as possible. But who should ‘own’ these projects? Privatising energy production means profit becomes the driving force behind the transition, and this happens at the expense of the people. Major energy projects should serve the people, not the shareholders.


Audience feedback

Baseline Survey

Our baseline survey establishes a starting point for understanding how climate change is currently impacting your community. By collecting data on existing conditions, concerns, and experiences, we can identify key areas for intervention. This information will help us tailor our campaign and measure the effectiveness of our efforts over time.

Follow-up Survey

Our follow-up survey assesses how the documentary has influenced your perspective on climate change and its impact on your community. By gathering your feedback on the film and its message, we can evaluate its effectiveness and identify areas for improvement. This information will guide our ongoing campaign efforts and help us continue to create meaningful change.

Additional Resources

These additional resources are designed to help you advertise your screening, collect a register and distribute the campaign demands. 


Tracking who attended the screening allows us to engage directly with individuals who have shown interest in the campaign. By staying connected with attendees, we can inspire further involvement and grow the movement for climate action.


Feel free to use these demands, developed by the Climate Justice Coalition, in a discussion after the screening to advocating for specific changes around energy democracy.
