World Environmental Day Celebration: Closing of the First Climantica Conference

 

In order to celebrate the World Environmental Day, the first Climantica Conference was held on the 5th of June at Fernando Blanco’s Secondary School in Cee.

In this Conference, the Director General for Sustainable Development and Climantica’s Director  gave a lecture in the assembly hall. Following the lecture, students could get some information on causes and effects of climate change in the thematic stands set up for this purpose. Some students, who were trained during three days by the Climantica expert responsible for school activities, were in charge of explaining all those issues to their schoolmates by means of experiments.

During the break, students could enjoy the performances of magicians, acrobats and jugglers. The World Environmental Day celebration was closed with the Climantopia show in which music, magic and multimedia reinforced the Environmental education messages delivered by some tales and songs. The purpose of this activity was to test this scheme so that it can be exported to other pilot schools involved and interested in the Climantica project.
