A good climate for the planet in metropolitan schools
“Climate in metropolitan schools” is the largest educational project implemented in the Gdańsk-Gdynia-Sopot Metropolitan Area. In 40 primary and secondary schools in metropolitan areas, activities are being carried out to help students and their parents learn more about climate change and how to mitigate its effects in an accessible way.
Violent storms and downpours. Floods and flooding. Heat waves and long weeks without a drop of rain. All of us have experienced this, and these are just a few of the effects of climate change. There is nothing to wait for, we must act to help our Planet!
Do you know the saying “a drop digs a rock”? Each of us can add a drop that will help our planet mitigate the effects of climate change. Where? Right next to us – in the garden at the house or school, on the lawn at the block, and even in the pot on the balcony. We suggest how to do it!
