“There’s no Planet B: Stop Climate change” is an Erasmus project which will bring together science education expertise from a range of European parties to develop scientific skills and concepts with particular reference to climate change.
We aim to raise pupil’s awareness of the impact that climate change will have on their future and our wish for our pupils is to change their outlook and daily behaviours thus having a positive impact on the future of our planet.
We aim to raise the level of attainment of Science in all participating institutions as well as improve pupil’s confidence in areas of scientific skills in all contexts.
This project is designed to give teachers the skills and confidence to teach about climate change, focusing on subject knowledge and pedagogy. In line with the national picture to enhance teaching and learning, our project which focuses primarily on primary education will provide children with secure and necessary skills.
We aim to develop a positive attitude towards Science, including the acquisition of higher-order skills, such as the ability to explore, to reason and to communicate scientifically. We want children to use their scientific knowledge effectively to help reduce climate change.
Climate change is defined as a change in climate, which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate vulnerability observed over other comparable time periods. The future of Europe depends largely on the level of education of children and young people; therefore, the aim of our project is to improve the quality of education.
The schools involved in the project are:
- St Columbas Primary – England
- Ettore Sacconi – Italy
- Radviliskio Vaizganto – Lithuania
- Szkola Podstawowa Nr 8 – Poland
