Our experiences have shown that teachers can improve students’ awareness, understanding and actions in relation to climate change education through curricular and extracurricular activities. GREEEN used networking as the main process to enrich and strengthen these efforts, and as a result opportunities for collaboration between students, teachers and schools through a multidisciplinary approach have become varied and enriched. This paper presents the recommendations for educational policy decision makers and curriculum developers to make climate change education as an essential part of school education in line with the experiences gained in this Project.
The three winning teams were invited to the 2-day GREEEN event that was hosted by the Landkreis Kassel, Germany. The prize of the competition was actually the trip to Kassel. All the same, we had a European award ceremony on Monday, 10th October, 2016, with all GREEEN partners and external guests. Unfortunately, there was a strike from Lufthansa and two of the three teams could not come to Kassel, as their flights were cancelled. Their projects were presented all the same and a big applause was sent to them!
