Hot Stuff Climate Net

$image_alt.data

Hot Stuff Climate Net is an initiative that intends to bring together the views and project ideas of young people from all over the world on Climate Change through an online network. It also tries to engage them in devising local and international activities to fight against climate change.

Since 2009, thousands of young people and school classes from 12 different countries have developed their own Hot Stuff climate projects and have shared their project stories through the Hot Stuff Climate Net.

The Hot Stuff Climate Net website shares some theoretical content on what climate change and the greenhouse effect are and what its causes and consequences are. The website also shares links on pages of interest, where scientists share information regarding the topic, and it presents ideas for developing activities at a local level with young students.

The rationale behind the project is to build on the idea that climate change is an issue with both global and local dimensions and that we must engage citizens to act at a local level in order to affect this global phenomenon.

Through the Hot Stuff Climate Net, pupils from several schools have carried out local projects and activities on topics related to climate change. They have also participated in international activities on climate change and consumption such as the “International Climate Challenge” and the “Local Solution Contest”.

The project includes a Facebook platform and a blog where the project participants can keep in touch and can develop and share inspiring ideas around the issue of climate change. The blog builds upon the Hot Stuff Durban blog community which commented on the international climate change conference held in Durban, South Africa, in December 2011.

There is also the possibility of inviting the project members to a school (lower and upper secondary) to impulse lessons and workshops and to start a new local project.
