Activities in Italy

  •  to                                    ITALY      


    This first learning activity for pupils will take place in Italy, where 20 pupils and 8 teachers from the partner countries will meet at the Italian school.

    The main topic of this activity is “meteorology” and is aimed at learning about how weather predictions are made (how to detect inputs from sensors, how to process data received) and climate change (reasons and consequences). Activities will deepen on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, with the large objective of gaining a holistic understanding of global environmental issue, and will especially be focused on: context analysis and

    inter-country comparison on climate change in Europe through measuring changes and comparing data - the effects of climate change (global warming, warming oceans, Artic Sea Ice declining, Glacial retreat, Ice Sheets Shrinking, Sea level rise, Biodiversity loss, Extreme events).
