INSPIRE: Classroom materials on climate change and renewable energy
The INSPIRE project is to create synergies and links between out-of-school places of learning and curricular learning, thus improving the base of knowledge of European pupils on matters related to education for sustainable development. Now the project has developed 15 lesson units for primary and secondary schools about the topics ‘climate change’ and ‘renewable energy’. The hands-on education material is useful for teachers at school but also for informal education and learning at out of school learning places.
The education material is available in English, German, Polish and Latvian.
The INSPIRE Project – “Inspire School Education by Non-formal Learning” - works in line with the objectives of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. The vision of the project INSPIRE is to improve the quality and attractiveness of in-service training of teachers at extracurricular learning places. INSPIRE will provide a basis upon which other projects focusing on education for sustainable development as a whole and renewable energy and climate issues in particular, may be undertaken in the future.
INSPIRE is a project funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme as a COMENIUS Multilateral Project. The project’s initial period is from October 2007 to September 2009.
