To increase the knowledge, understanding, and expertise of Latvian pupils as well as develop their skills and attitudes towards climate variability and tackling climate change and moving towards low-carbon development, as well as adaptation to climate change by developing and implementing interdisciplinary practical work in the fields of formal and informal education and involving the society in the observation of natural adaptation processes.
The main activities of the project:
- the development of climate-change-related interdisciplinary practical work and its integration in science and geography lessons of school curricula as well as teacher education programmes;
- the implementation of experiments as events of informal education, including the preparation and publication of videos, inviting young people to explore the natural processes independently, on the Internet;
- the implementation of seasonal phenomenon observation on the nature observation system (dabasdati.lv) and observation as an example for natural adaptation.
