World Climate Teach-In Day in June

Dear Colleagues,

To foster the search for local solutions to tackle the global
challenge of climate change it is important to raise awareness about
this topic at universities and schools. This is the central aim of the
"World Climate Teach-In Day", to be held in the run-up of CLIMATE 2010
on the 4th June 2010. Under the patronage of EU Climate Commissioner
Connie Hedegaard*, the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences/Germany
organizes this truly worldwide event in the frame of the International Climate Change Information Programme
(ICCIP = http://www.iccip.net).

University lecturers and teachers are encouraged to hold a 1-hour
lecture on climate change and discuss with their students one of
today’s most important topics. Pre-formatted lectures can be
downloaded free of any charges from the internet. To encourage further
information exchange and networking, students can discuss the topic
online with other students from all over the world in an online
forum.
