World Climate Teach-In Day
May 27th, 2010
To foster the search for local solutions to tackle the global challenge of climate change it is important to raise awareness about this topic at universities and schools. This is the central aim of the “World Climate Teach-In Day“, to be held in the run-up of CLIMATE 2010 on 4 June 2010, which is one day before the World Environment Day, a traditional date in the world environment calendar.
Under the patronage of EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences/Germany will organize this truly worldwide event in the frame of its “International Climate Change Information Programme” (ICCIP). University lecturers and teachers are encouraged to hold a 1-hour lecture on climate change and discuss with their students one of today’s most important topics. Pre-formatted lectures can be downloaded free of charge from the internet. To encourage further information exchange and networking, students can discuss the topic online with other students from all over the world in an online forum.
