ΖΟΟΜ CAMPAIGN – Kids on the Move for Climate Action-Collection of Green Footprints
Zoom Campaign-“Kids on the move” will be implemented one more time in Greece in October 2017, in the context of EYD2015-The future we want project, co-financed by EUROPEAid program.
Kindergarten children, and their parents, will increase awareness of eco-friendly mobility by getting involved in activities covering the topics of sustainability, climate change and traffic in a playful way.
Over 500 children are expected to participate in the campaign out of 19 Kindergartens of Thermi, Thermaikos, Thessaloniki, Kalamaria and Pylaia-Hortiatis Municipalities and out of the 4 Centers for Children Creative Activities of Thermi Municipality.
During an activity week on sustainable mobility, children are invited to make their daily journeys independently and in a climate-friendly way. Each journey absolved on foot, by bike, skater, bus, train etc. counts one "Green Footprint"
Children will participate in individual or team activities that their teachers will organize on the subject of Climate Change, eco-friendly mobility and environmental threats. Through educational methods that the teacher himself chooses, like painting, crafts, theater or story-telling, children learn the consequences of gas emissions, the threats on animal and human life and the dependence of their lives on climate.
“Green Footprints” collected and activities implemented will be handed over to representatives of UN by the Lead Partner, Climate Alliance, in November 2017.
