Educational project

NEXT GENERATION 2.0:
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.

After the success of the first educational project "NEXT GENERATION", funded by the Italian National Commission for UNESCO, the new project "NEXT GENERATION 2.0" is launched, enriched with a new format and content.

The relationship between the climate and the human species, as well as the complex issue of climate change, is as evident in the academic and research world as it is still little perceived by citizens. For this reason, the Macromicro Association believes that the school is the natural place to transmit this knowledge and to promote a culture of sustainability and respect for the environment in order to preserve our species.

The project has developed materials and proposed didactic and cultural actions, elaborating an innovative model of education on climate change in line with the school objective, promoting and organising a series of conferences and screenings in Italian schools and universities.

Teachers involved in the "NEXT GENERATION 2.0" educational project will hold theoretical and practical sessions aimed at raising students' awareness of climate change and encouraging them to become more aware of environmental issues.

The Macromicro Association will be able to rely on the material collected over 13 years by the photographic-scientific project "On the trail of the glaciers", which has combined photographic comparisons and scientific research in order to reveal the effects of climate change by observing variations in glacier masses over the last 150 years.

The Macromicro Association intends to offer its didactic project free of charge, thanks to public or private funding; it is aimed at primary and secondary schools and universities, proposing an effective and high level transmission of scientific knowledge in the school environment, by offering programmes tailored to the age, geographical area and needs of the institutions.
