SCHOOL PROJECT

Since 2011 Italian Climate Network has developed the School Project, which is aimed at secondary schools with pupils aged between 11 and 19. The project requires ICN trainers to go to secondary schools to teach the causes, context, consequences and solutions related to climate change. The goal is to ensure understanding of the topic, providing students with useful tools for analysis and comparison. During its activity, the School Project has reached more than 40 schools in 33 cities, 11 regions, thus involving more than 6,000 students.


BASIC CLASS

The one-hour long basic class is structured as follows:

  1. THE CLIMATE ISSEUE – Global warming, the climate in history, the role of human activities, the current situation, future scenarios, the aggravating factors, the scientific community consensus.
  2. THE CONSEQUENCES – The temperature rise, ice melting, sea level rise, the increase of extreme atmospheric events, desertification, the impacts on health, the climatic migrations, the economic damages, biodiversity loss. 
  3. THE SOLUTIONS – Tackling climate change at every level: brief overview on international negotiates, regional and European policies, national measures, municipalities’ commitments, citizens’ responsibility, the role of media.

FOCUS CLASSES

In case schools want to further deepen some specific themes related to climate, it is also possible, in addition to the basic lesson, to choose among one or more in-depth lesson covering a specific theme, and that requires about one hour. These are the five topics currently available:

  • CLIMATE AND ENERGY [NEW!]
  • CLIMATE NEGOTIATIONS
  • CLIMATE AND HUMAN RIGHTS
  • CLIMATE AND WASTE MANAGEMENT
