Climate change and environmental degradation are an existential threat to Europe and the world.
Climate change refers to a change in climate patterns due to human activities, going beyond the natural variability in the climate. This is caused by greenhouse gases emitted into our atmosphere. Among the drivers of these emissions are the burning of fossil fuels, industrial processes, livestock farming, and waste treatment.
The Fight Climate Change project goal is to produce a set of training and educational materials to raise awareness and contribute to the fight against climate change through collective innovation and efforts.
The project aims to:
Educate educators on climate change challenges and the UN SDGs and equip them with interactive training instruments to embed within their trainings.
Upskill entrepreneurs and SMEs owners/ managers on how to use the innovation management process in developing their sustainability strategies to fight against climate change.
Guide entrepreneurs and SMEs owners/ managers on becoming agents of change for their colleagues/ employees and transforming their business culture and values to eco ones.
Provide a user-friendly digital platform to educators, entrepreneurs, SMEs and individuals to measure their carbon footprint and provide valuable tips on how to help reduce the negative impact on the environment and support the fight against climate change.
The partnership will produce 4 main outputs upon the successful project realisation:
Climate Change & Sustainable You Handbook
Innovating for Climate Change & Sustainability Toolkit
Culture of Change & Change of Culture Manual.
