Nice initiatives


This project began in 2007 in some schools (publics and privates) of the Lara state, in Venezuela. The fundamental principle of the program is strengthened through pedagogy, environmental studies oriented to climate change, for students and teachers may have direct access to that information at the same time, to be spokesmen of the current situation of our planet.

This project melds two of the most important time to take action on the matter, environmental education and climate change, searching so, the viability of awareness to possible solutions related to mitigation and adaptation of the main consequences of climate change.

The Other CO2 Problem

The Other CO2 Problem is a creative animation produced by a group of students from Ridgeway School in Plymouth. These young students have made their concerns about the state of the world’s oceans clear through a group of nice characters from King Poseidon’s Kingdom beneath the sea. Most people are not aware about the idea that the oceans are becoming more acidic as a result of human activities and how this can affect the future of the sea and its creatures. The film has already been viewed at two prestigious scientific meetings, first in Copenhagen where it was seen by more than a hundred international scientists and policy makers attending the International Congress on Climate Change, and second at a meeting of the Royal Institution in London as part of a presentation by Dr Carol Turley, a research scientist from Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
