About the project

The Carbon Act project aims to empower educators and students across Europe to address climate change through education. By promoting climate literacy, we seek to inspire informed decision-making and proactive behaviours that support sustainability and resilience.

Carbon Act's mission is to create a lasting impact on climate change education by developing best practices, teaching materials, and comprehensive guidelines. These resources are designed to directly support teachers in their classrooms and influence policy and research at a systemic level.

Building upon the achievements of past educational initiatives, Carbon Act introduces innovative practices in climate education. We leverage successful models like Project-Based Learning and Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) to create engaging, interdisciplinary learning experiences. These methods not only make learning more dynamic and student-centered, but also establish a clear connection between classroom activities and the real-world climate challenges we face.

By fostering collaboration among European educators, researchers, and policymakers, Carbon Act aims to mainstream climate education and ensure its widespread adoption.
