Yes! The Climate Literacy project has finally started. On 18 and 19 January 2016, all participating organizations came together in Mechelen (Belgium). These kick-off meetings are mostly about practicalities and getting to know each other (this one was not that different).

Yet we managed to already put some interesting things in motion:

  • Phase one: framework analysis – F.T.I / Technopolis® drew up a plan of action and some handy templates to build the report and analysis on all existing projects on climate literacy and education.
    All countries are set to:
    • make an inventory on existing education materials
    • send a questionnaire to the public to get an insight on the level of literacy
    • hold focus groups and interviews with educators and ordinary citizens
  • Website content creation – All parties gave their insight on what we should put on the project’s website, http://www.climate-literacy.eu .
  • Logo creation – We’ve held an interesting workshop on what the logo should look like. Technopolis has already started sketching.
    These are the partners, whose input we already greatly value:

    • CARDET, Centre for the Advancement of Research and Development in Educational Technology (Cyprus)
