Climate change is one of the greatest challenges for current and future generations. It is therefore all the more important that everyone knows what is at stake! Would you like to learn more about the topic? Then you've come to the right place. Get closer to the topics of environmental protection, climate change and renewable energies with fun and games. We have put together a few projects for young and old!
With online calculators, for example, you can easily calculate the ecological footprint of your diet and see in which areas you can save emissions. With the resource calculator of the Wuppertal Institute you can see how many tonnes you need in different areas, such as consumption or mobility. Here you can also compare your final result with other participants. Finally, you will also receive helpful tips on how to improve your "ecological rucksack".
The state agency for energy and climate protection (NRW.Energy4Climate) offers exciting, guided experiments for fifth to tenth graders. The little ones learn how to save energy through play, while the older ones learn about the connections between consumption and climate protection and immerse themselves in the topics of digitalisation and the energy transition with the help of virtual reality. In addition, the eighth to tenth grade learn about the working world around climate protection and renewable energies with an Escape Game.
Bring these projects to your school! Find out more about the projects and how you can book them here.
Kindergartens and daycare centres that set out to explore the topic of climate protection with children in a playful way, and to experience and learn about their own possibilities for action, can be awarded the title KlimaKita.NRW. All information and conditions of participation can be found here.
