Day of the Earth in Ghent

On 24 March 2005, within the Day of the Earth the students of the 5th year secondary school "Koninklijk Atheneum Voskenslaan" in Ghent were introduced to the theme "Climate is turning". Guest speakers, movies, educative plays, music and dance all belonged to this full day event. The International Polar Foundation was invited and Sandra Vanhove attended as guest speaker.

Our role was to give an information session entitled ‘Climate Change, North and South Pole'. The session ended with an ICT group work during which the students could let their inspiration roam free on the subjects of global climate Change, Arctica, Antarctica, polar sciences, international intitiatives and solutions. The pilot project will end with a poster presentation. The final poster will of course be published on this very website.
