No Impact Man – Film

Intriguingly high concept yet visually and structurally artless in the way of so many modern documentaries, Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein’s “No Impact Man” chronicles Colin Beavan’s yearlong experiment to reduce his carbon footprint as much as possible while living in New York City.

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.
