Changing with the climate - A Comenius funded educational network that will link schools across Europe to enhance teaching and learning and to encourage positive action in response to climate change.
The changing with the climate network has been set up to develop an understanding of the causes of the observed climatic changes and to initiate actions to minimise these changes.It is an educational network linking schools and classes in exploring the likely impacts of this global concern and what can be done to mitigate and to adapt to such changes.
The network will help schools meet the challenge of including within their lesson plans education for sustainable development of which climate change is a priority topic.So the network is compiling resources for teaching such a multi-disciplinary topic; developing a teaching and learning process that will make scientific topics more interesting to students and relevant to their lifestyle; and creating an understanding about the ever increasing need to use energy more sustainably.

The website forms the primary means of information and communication between members of the network, and its contents will be updated regularly. The website is initially available in the seven languages of the partners and will be extended when other countries join.
2012 Climate change challenge for schools
All the available evidence suggests that the earth’s climate is changing and that the time for stabilising the climate is decreasing. So actions are required and the network has decided to organise an annual climate challenge for schools. Our 2012 challenge is now open to all schools across Europe, primary as well as secondary, that are willing to undertake a project to limit climate change.
