Fact: Our climate is changing! This is not a hoax! For this inspiring global project 250 schools over 69 countries will collaborate on climate change topics over the course of four exciting weeks! Students from across six different continents will conduct research, brainstorm and discuss ideas, present and share their findings about these topics via videos and online presentations. During the final week of the project, all participants will have an opportunity to Skype with each other to establish personal and meaningful connections with their global peers. Together, we hope to instil a greater understanding in our students of the importance of taking action against climate change.
In order to be better global citizens, students need to tackle big questions. Real world problem-solving and innovation skills are vital for being an active participant in the 21st Century.
The goal of this student-centered global project is to provide an opportunity for students from 50+ countries in over six continents to construct their own knowledge about climate change and to create a growth mindset about overcoming and most of all taking action. Students will be encouraged to use their critical-thinking and reasoning skills to build deep knowledge. Let's bring empathy into our classrooms!
