Take action on climate change!
There is climate action happening everywhere. Each of us can engage in climate actions and make a difference. The GREEEN team is inviting European school students to show us their projects and ideas that contribute to this momentum for change. We are looking forward to seeing young people’s innovation, and the climate change solutions they are developing in their schools or communities.
Make the difference!
The GREEEN network invites you to submit projects, concepts or ideas on engaging in climate action, key outcomes and impact of your action, and its success in meeting the climate change challenge locally.
You can describe a project that has already been carried out or is still in the planning process. You can also describe a concept or idea that could potentially be carried out if you had the chance to do so.
In any case, you should:
- show how far your project or idea makes a difference;
- follow scientific principles (testing, evidence/data, analysis, etc.);
- describe the impact of your project or idea.
