Behind the MOOC
Life Terra is founded on the knowledge that tree planting is regarded as the most cost-effective nature-based solution to capture carbon. As part of a multi-faceted mitigation strategy, planting trees can play an important role in the fight against climate change and the devastation it causes.
The project seeks to bring people together to plant 500 million trees, harnessing and monitoring nature’s own carbon capture mechanism and enabling citizens to take urgent action against the climate crisis.
Scientix, the community for science education in Europe, promotes and supports a Europe-wide collaboration among STEM teachers, education researchers, policymakers and other STEM education professionals.
This course has been developed by Life Terra, co-financed by the European Commission through the LIFE Programme (LIFE19 CCM/NL/001200). The course is additionally supported by Scientix, an initiative of European Schoolnet (EUN).
