In the first week of the project, students defined climate change and listed local causes of these changes.
Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of meteorological patterns when this change lasts over an extended period of time (ie, decades to millions of years). Climate change can refer to a change in average weather conditions or to a change in the weather in the context of long-term average conditions.
Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by the Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have been identified as the main causes of ongoing climate change, often referred to as global warming.
Local causes - deforestation, burning of fossil fuels, use of old cars, dumping of waste in surface and groundwater, lack of recycling.
The effects of climate change identified by students are drought, desertification, declining agricultural production, drinking water crisis, disease, poverty, social crises.
Melting glaciers, the destruction of fauna and flora, the drinking water crisis, storms and tornadoes that cause immense damage and loss of life.
In the fourth week of the project, students thought of solutions that can be applied to stop pollution, global warming, climate change, environamental issues.
They worked in teams or individually and they were happy that they could also find solutions to apply in their daily lives.
They all concluded that small changes bring major benefits, that the drops form an ocean.
The last week of the project was marked by the joy of achieving the proposed objectives. The students involved wrote letters, planted trees, followed the activities of other students from different countries.
