- CO2 on the way to school

We recommend that you use the 10 steps to set up a plan for your school. Try to think through and plan how you will carry out each step of CO2nnect.

Write down the activities you will do with your pupils, what subjects and teachers will be involved, who you will cooperate with and how you want to present the results. See the other help sheets such as project work and other activities for more ideas!

Below is one example of how you could organise the 10 steps and activities of CO2nnect at your school.

1. Plan and prepare for CO2nnect

2. Teachers sign up the school and their classes to participate

3. Introduce topics of climate change, CO2, school transport and sustainability

4. Collect data on distance to school and means of transportation and enter it into the international database.

5. Complete a short online questionnaire on climate- and transport issues

6. Analyse and discuss your results; compare your CO2 emissions from transport with that of other schools and countries).

7. An important part of CO2nnect is to think about how systems can be changed to reduce CO2. We encourage you to work closely with local authorities, parents, businesses, organisations or other stakeholders.

8. Develop ideas for reducing climate emissions from transport. Upload your climate idea and photos from your work.

9. Submit a project report (optional).

10. Evaluate CO2nnect and become a SUPPORT school (teachers, optional).
