This learning scenario draw students’ attention to the problems of global warming and the danger to the environment. The main topics are energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, global policies and how we can preserve the urban environment for future generations.
The student must be aware of the problem of global warming and pollution of the environment and urban environment. This will inspire them to study STEM subjects better and to know how can help to solve these global problems in the future.

About the NBS project :
The NBS MOOC, coordinated by European Schoolnet (EUN), is part of the NBS pilots initiated and funded by the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. The LS and MOOC are based on the EC-funded Learning Scenarios developed by EUN (www.eun.org) with the support of PPMI (www.ppmi.lt/en), and organised with the support of VO EUROPE (https://www.vo-group.be/en). The MOOC is also supported by Scientix, funded from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme – project Scientix 4 (Grant Agreement N. 101000063).
