Prof. Walter Leal
ICCIP's Director

This first decade of the 21st Century has shown how much still needs to be done in respect of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, but also in respect of communication, education and training on climate change. Therefore, the Decade 2011-2020 needs to be the "Decade of Climate Change Education, Awareness and Training" and ICCIP will be running various projects and will organise many activities, to achieve this goal.

Aims

The aims of the "International Climate Change Information Programme" are:

Based on the fact that current internet technologies can provide a substantial contribution in terms of disseminating information and the latest scientific findings on climate change research in a fast and efficient way, the "International Climate Change Information Programme" will also strive to help to meet the demand for climate-friendly and climate-neutral events. On-line events such as "Climate 2009" the "European Climate Teach-In Days" will therefore be organized or a regular basis, not as means to replace conventional, presence events, but as a complement to them.

Last but not least, the "International Climate Change Information Programme" will encourage more networking and information exchange and catalyse new cooperation initiatives and possibly new projects.
