The project EPRAL aims to promote knowledge of global warming around the world. Six European schools from France (Guadalupe), Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and two schools from Poland will carry out some joint activities: competition for the best project mascot, choosing the logo among students and teachers, organizing informative campaigns, preparing calendars with student’s drawings showing causes and consequences of global warming, preparing five films: Session 1: Presentation of a definition of climate change and the specificities of these changes in each country. Session 2: Its impacts on the climate in each country. Session 3: Its impacts on the mountains and forests. Session 4: Its impacts on the sea. Session 5: Showing some preventive measures. The method of our working will be investigative approach that gives the opportunity for students to take a role of researcher conducting investigations.
