Cool Kids for Great Climate
Theo the polar bear explains why the greenhouse effect makes life on earth possible, robot Joule takes us into the world of energy and stork Karina shows us the consequences of climate change and mobility. In an interactive way, this traveling exhibition for children of elementary school age makes the complex topic of climate protection a tangible and easy-to-understand experience.
The touring exhibition offers children at elementary schools the opportunity to learn about climate protection in a playful yet technically based way and to discover it through interactive stations that are close to everyday life. The topics cover everything from the greenhouse effect and climate change to mobility, fossil and renewable energy sources, nutrition and the importance of the rainforest. Children learn about their possibilities for shaping a climate-friendly lifestyle. Schools and interested clubs in the EuRegio Salzburg – Berchtesgadener Land – Traunstein can borrow the exhibition free of charge.
