GREEEN – GREEEN guide

05_greeen logo mit ausgeschriebenem Titel_kleinThe GREEEN Network proudly presents the GREEEN Guide that is meant to serve teachers and other education professionals as a source of inspiration for the integration of climate change related topics into educational programmes and school curricula in a creative and multi-disciplinary way. The guide does not repeat information that are available in many other sources on climate change but does very much focus on the GREEEN partners’ experience. It offers good practice examples on how climate change has been integrated into specific subjects or into extracurricular activities – all gathered by the GREEEN partner schools and all based on real experience – as well as examples of networking activities and presents the various offerings provided by the GREEEN Network.
You can download the guide in English from GREEEN website. The Guide is now being translated into all partner languages and French. These versions will be also made available on the website soon.

GREEEN – Award ceremony in Kassel

05_greeen logo mit ausgeschriebenem Titel_kleinThe 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. In addition, 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!

2nd GREEEN Award – Take action on climate change!

The best projects will be invited to our final conference in October 2016, in Kassel, Germany.

And the award goes to …

05_greeen logo mit ausgeschriebenem Titel_kleinThe GREEEN Network organised a storytelling award that addressed 14-19 year-old students in Europe to tell their story on climate change. The story involved a time travel – we wanted the storytellers to imagine that they live in 2115 and tell people how the battle against climate change was finally won. How did people change their behaviour into a climate friendly and sustainable one? What invention made fossil fuels obsolete? How did we decrease the consumption of resources to a sustainable level?

From the more than 55 submitted stories the jury members  Continue reading

Once upon a time …?

We want you to imagine you live in the future and tell people the story on how the battle against climate change was finally won in the beginning of the 21st century. How did people change their behaviour into a climate friendly and sustainable one? What new (or old) invention made fossil fuels obsolete? How did we decrease the consumption of resources to a sustainable level? How did we secure ecosystem services for future generations?
