age group
 Students from 14 to 16 years old and their teachers.
Topic  
Climate changes, energy saving, renewables - and how to teach it.
Goal

The idea behind the project is to change the way the subject of climate change is taught in Danish schools! - Climate was seen earlier solely as a science subject. The idea is to give the teachers a new entry to the topic, a debate and a political angle, and to let the science be the background and part of the solution. Since 2007 the Climate Caravan brings the message out to every region of Denmark, visiting schools and creating local debate. Read more here (pdf file 90 kb) December 2009.

Description and Evaluation

The website www.klimakaravanen.dk offers all activities on-line, including a lot of video materials enabling schools that do not receive the visit to carry out their own Climate Caravan Day or to deliver the same benefits in other contexts. Most of the materials are in Danish, but some of the games (spil) are in English.
