"Climate Sentinels " is a project proposed by A Sud in partnership with COSPE, Un Ponte Per, Resilea, Palma Nana, Docenti Senza Frontiere, Società Meteorologica Italiana and Ismed-CNR. The project’s objective is to raise awareness of climate change and to strengthen the knowledge and skills of teachers, students, educational communities and institutions towards a global citizenship active in fighting against and adapting to climate change. The project is particularly focused on: 1) Strengthening teachers' knowledge on the theme of Climate Change through the sharing of best practice, tools and educational approaches; 2) Offering students and teachers an educational programme based on: open and participatory scientific approaches; experiential learning at the global and local level; skills development to use a set of functional behaviours for climate advocacy; climate resilience and local impact reduction; 3) Mobilize local communities in the development and adoption of Community Education Pacts (CEP) and in public meetings on the theme of climate change. This will involve awareness building in local and national institutions and the development of a strategic plan institutionalise the learning of climate change, mitigation and adaptation. “Climate Sentinels" will test a series of trans-disciplinary and trans-sectoral processes to build awareness, to educate and train in formal, informal and non-formal settings, and to support innovation in climate education in 11 schools in 5 Italian regions (Sicily, Piedmont, Lazio, Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany). This will be achieved by combining the training of teachers and students in classroom activities, local, national and international online activities, educational field trips, film screenings, international exchanges and events (public meetings, conferences, workshops), the development and promotion of Community Education Pacts, social campaigning and journalism. To achieve these objectives, the project partners will develop a 20-hour online training course for 150 teachers and school leaders and deliver it as a modular, participatory and experiential educational experience to 968 students in 11 municipalities in 5 regions (Lazio, Piedmont, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany and Sicily). The pedagogical program will include: field visits, detection and mapping on the impact of climate change and extreme events at the local and global level, storytelling, webinars with experts on climate change and the Protezione Civile[LF1] , virtual meetings with young people from the Middle East and the Amazon Forest. The training will also include the development of a geo-referenced educational tool (GIS map) to store and organise the data collected by the students and the educational and scientific materials produced by the partners. This will offer teachers a centralised tool to support the preparation, implementation and follow-up of the proposed educational activities. Alongside the delivery of the training, local educational communities made up of schools, local authorities, local NGOs and parents, will work towards building 11 proposals for educational community pacts focused on tackling climate change. Local communities will also have the opportunity to learn about some experiences of resilience and adaptation to climate change in the South of the world. The project will further share the activities and tools developed nationally through the following activities: 1 national workshop to exchange experiences of Community Education Pacts, 1 national conference on the challenges of climate change education, 1 strategic plan on the institutionalization of climate change, mitigation and adaptation in formal education settings. These activities will involve an additional 405 people including members of local associations and parent associations, school leaders and staff, referrals from public institutions, residents of municipalities where the activities are taking place, and workers from the public education. read more close
