SEGNALI AMBIENTALI 2010 – La biodiversità, i cambiamenti climatici e tu

Segnali ambientali ci accompagna in un viaggio che segue il corso dell’acqua dai ghiacciai delle Alpi al permafrost dell’Artico al delta del Gange. Visitiamo luoghi familiari e remoti, esaminando come si possano ricostruire le relazioni con gli elementi essenziali della vita quotidiana: l’acqua, il suolo, l’aria e gli animali e le piante che insieme formano la trama della vita sulla Terra.

A communication platform containing a breakdown of communication groups have been developed in which target groups are grouped together by core values in order to support the EPA’s continuing work on climate issues.

The project CO2nnect:

«The international campaign CO2nnect: CO2 on the way to school
provides schools with a unique opportunity to provide high quality
Education for Sustainable Development.»

Bård Vegar Solhjell, The Norwegian Minister of Education

Pupils need wide competencies to meet the challenges of sustainable development – including climate change. The CO2nnect activities are designed to support learning that can provide pupils with abilities, skills, attitudes and awareness as well as knowledge and understanding of the issues.

The activities can easily be adapted to a range of age groups and linked to the curricula of many subjects

Climate Action – European Commission

Available in all EU languages!
Today’s teenagers are likely to experience the effects of climate change much more than we do today-and they will be forced to address the issue. It’s important that we familiarise them with what we know today so they become aware of the causes of climate change and understand what they can do to change it.

European Commissioner for Environment Stavros Dimas is calling upon teachers like you across the European Union to discuss climate change in class and encourage your pupils to sign the pledge to reduce their CO2 emissions.
