EU Green Deal

One of the most striking developments in recent years regarding the prevention of climate change is the European Green Deal. 

The EU, when planning the transition to a carbon-free economy by 2050, has made a trillion euro call for climate crisis management and prevention. Within the scope of the Green Deal call, empowerment of knowledge and individuals is stated as a horizontal goal. 

Within this call, it is necessary to ensure that individuals take action on climate change for sustainable development and environmental protection through education, citizen science, observation initiatives, and civic participation. 

The TECCHED project aims to develop a technology-supported climate change curriculum to support the ‘character and values’ development to meet this, in line with the goals and objectives of the Green Deal. 

It supports the quality of teacher education by fostering affective domains of preservice teachers (teacher candidates) for informed decision making about the climate change.
