Clim@venture 1.5 is a project that fosters action-oriented climate education in schools across Europe, designed and implemented by Changemaker (Sweden), Energieagentur Ebersberg-München (Germany), Italia che Cambia (Italy) and Forum ViA (Austria), co-financed by the European Union in the context of the Erasmus Plus - KA2 - Cooperation Partnership.

Clim@ventures are developed, because students are supposed to
  • bring climate knowledge and experience from the classroom into communities
  • find best-practice-examples for climate-protection by small excursions into the surroundings of the schools (green micro-travel)
  • talk to inspiring and active people with great responsibility
  • reflect on possible job prospects in the field of climate protection and energy transition
  • share their experience with other pupils and schools – in their country and in Europe - and contribute to a public network full of "clim@venture-stories”


Modules 1-2


Learning inside the school: the Climate Scout Box, developed by the Energieagentur Ebersberg-München, contains 10 experiments. With the help of these experiments, students can educate themselves on their knowledge on climate change and deepen their understanding of the correlation between the climate change and human behaviour.




Modules 3-5:


Based on ideas developed by Forum VIA, the learning takes place outside the class room: students will take part at field trips into their neighbourhood to explore places connected to topics of environmental protection and climate change. In exchange with the students of the other class, they develop ideas on how to explore their surroundings from their school, their hometown, and the nearest larger cities. They do research and find out about best-practice projects or companies that have already successfully acted against climate-change, reduced energy - and resource-consumption. Students will meet with local stakeholders like politicians, environmental activists or experts for renewable energies. Students reflect possible jobs and career perspectives while talking to these people and while they find out which professional background they have.
