Raising the awareness on climate change at the level of local and national authorities in our efforts to make them act for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Adaptation to climate change and awareness raising
The main objective is to reach new groups of the general public with information about adaptation to climate change
We will be using the outputs of the project to raise the needed awareness on climate change at the level of local and national authorities in our efforts to make them act for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
A strong cooperation has previously been developed in the framework of The Climate Change Campaigners Fellowship Program that involved around 20 NGOs from Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Latvia. We will be using the experience of this project to inspire them in developing similar projects, by providing them information regarding the project. Also, the information will be provided to the national NGOs for further dissemination.
The brochure made is posted here:
this project, TERRA Mileniul III Foundation will introduce a new approach in
tackling the climate change subject at the Romanian level – the bottom-up
approach. We target directly the general
public and indirectly the authorities.
We also combine the traditional methods for information and raising
awareness (i.e. leaflet, brochure, seminar) with novelty ones (i.e. movie,
photo exhibition). The activities of the
project fall in two categories: documentation (with outputs like brochure,
movie and photos on the impact and effects of climate change in Romania) and
information dissemination (through: national and international networks,
seminar, mobile cinema, events in schools, social media channels, websites,
mass-media). We will also sowing the seeds for the implementation of similar
initiatives in other European countries, based on the successful cooperation
and networks both TERRA III and RAC-RO developed during the years.
