Educational Resources from Climate Research Projects

In this page you will find a database of educational resources around Climate Science from EU climate research projects.

Many EU research projects currently working on research around climate science, climate modelling or climate change also produce valuable educational resources tailored for the classroom or to support teachers’ professional development. These resources can also greatly interest anyone wanting to learn more about climate science and climate change.

CRESCENDO (2015-2021) focused on increasing the scientific realism of 7 European Earth System Models through targeted improvements to a range of key processes.

  is a European network of Schools for Earth System Modelling and Climate Change created under the CRESCENDO project.
