Dear Colleagues, (sorry for cross-posting)

 

I would like to invite you to the final conference of your project EduChange - Making knowledge together - addressing climate change through innovative place-based education and blended learning, that will take place on Monday 29th June 2020.

 

The project was focused on an innovative way of teaching about Climate Change in both local and global perspectives via the field course methodology.

 

The conference will be a blended event - you can participate either in Olomouc (Czech Republic) or online via Zoom (https://tinyurl.com/EduChangeConf).

 

If you decide to participate online or on-site, please register online here (https://forms.gle/caD6Q3xcYvVBmAVa6) it will help us to organise the event better!

 

Thank you VERY much, and please share the event info with people you believe may be interested in it.

 

Jirka Pánek
