In this project we deal with climate education and anti-smog education in schools. Every year more than 40,000 people in Poland die because of smog. The main problem faced by Poland is the emission of harmful gases and dust into the atmosphere caused mainly by using poor quality fuels in household furnaces and boiler houses. Another important issue is global warming, which is caused by greenhouse gas emissions. The accelerated rate of climate change has serious negative consequences, including severe weather events, reduced availability of water, extinction of species, and other socio-economic problems. The project aims to provide students and teachers from 16 schools in the Wielkopolska Region with knowledge about smog in Poland and climate change. Students will initiate positive changes in their homes and local community. Teachers will develop their knowledge, get acquainted with tools for educating about smog and climate change more effectively, and promoting active and aware citizenship. School buildings will be inspected for energy efficiency and environmentally friendly solutions. We will use the inspection data to develop recommendations.
