There is a perceived need to foster awareness about climate change in schools and universities and to engage young people and future professionals in the search for local solutions for a problem with has global dimensions. Yet, although much is written and spoken about climate change at scientific circles, little information filters through other levels.Since much can be gained by using scientific information to foster the debate on climate change at schools and universities across Europe, the "World Climate Teach-In Day" will be organized, to held on the 4th June 2010, one day before the World Environment Day, a traditional date in the world environment calendar."
