The challenges of climate change
We believe in the importance of spreading environmental awareness among the younger generations and in the communicative power of images.
The relationships between climate and human species and the complex topic of climate change are as evident to the academic and research sector as they are still little perceived by citizens. The school is the natural place to transmit this knowledge and to promote a culture of sustainability and respect for the environment for the preservation of our species.
This project has developed materials and proposed didactic and cultural actions, elaborating an innovative and adherent model of education on climate change for the school target, promoting and organising a series of conferences and screenings in Italian schools and universities.
The teachers involved in the educational project will hold theoretical and practical meetings aimed at raising students' awareness of climate change and stimulating them towards a greater awareness of environmental issues.
The Macromicro association can count on the material collected in over 13 years in the framework of the photographic-scientific project "On the Trails of the Glaciers", which has combined photographic comparisons and scientific research in order to divulge the effects of climate change through the observation of variations in glacial masses over the last 150 years.
The Macromicro association intends to propose its didactic project free of charge thanks to public or private funding; it addresses first and second grade secondary schools and universities by proposing an effective and high-level transmission of scientific knowledge, in the school environment, offering programmes tailored to target age group, geographical area and needs of the institutes.
