Creating European Hot Spots for Education in Climate, Water and Environment

Published: 01.11.2020

Climate change and solutions to problems caused by climate change are not local problems but transnational and cross-bordering. These problems are to be solved jointly between the different countries in the EU. This project aims to increase the interest to teach in cooperation with professional companies and relevant institutions that will contribute with the newest and most valid knowledge concerning environment, water and climate change.
The lead partner is Skanderborg Gymnasium that will contribute with teachers who can develop educational material of all kinds in cooperation with our local partner and knowledge center, AquaGlobe. AquaGlobe has professionals in all aspects concerning water. Other than that, the aim to communicate the problems with water in the context of climate change is facilitated by anthropologist and by professional communication employees.
- Phase 1 – collecting practices. In the beginning of the project, we need to collect knowledge and experiences about the problems including water solutions from the different partners.
- Phase 2 - Developing the material. The aim is to develop three courses of instruction with different focus, but all centered around water, environment and climate.
- Phase 3 – Testing the material in hotspots. The third phase will be an exploratory phase. The partner schools will teach according to the material and will evaluate the material.
- Phase 4 – Implementing. In the fourth phase the aim is to edit the teaching material and to implement the teaching material as best practice in the partner schools.

The material is to be taught both indoor and outdoor at the hotspots of AquaGlobe and through our European partner organizations. The hotspots are areas with relevance concerning climate and water. The aim is that schools in all of Europe should easily be able to teach climate change concerning water with their own hotspots in their local environment, possibly with their own professional companies.

We search for partners who will join us in developing the material and the hotspots in a European context. To qualify the material and the hotspots the intention is to put together a taskforce from the partner schools with a special interest in the subject.
The teachers at the partner schools should conduct a questionnaire in the beginning and in the end of the project asking about their desire and motivation to teach with external partners in the subject of climate. The questionnaire should also explore any kind of resistance to the involvement of external partners with the aim to adjust the project accordingly.
