This project held between 22 - 29 May 2015 in Gesi town of Kayseri in Turkey. The Themes of the Training course: Life style is a behavioural pattern that makes people different from the others. The statistics about climate change show how pollution, extinction, human's wrong behaviour are destroying the planet. We might think that we can't do anything to change or bring the situation in a better way but that's the point where we are wrong: an average person can do many things to make his or her daily routine more eco-friendly .Within this project we would like to discover and experience all together how to make it possible. We want to bring new ecological perspectives , raise people's awareness and take a new step to more ecological life. The overall aim of the Training course is to bring...
The smallest Canary Island, El Hierro, is focusing on eco-tourism. Instead of high-rise hotels and shopping malls, visitors can enjoy unspoiled countryside and coastline.El Hierro can't begin to rival Gran Canaria and Tenerife as a holiday destination - but it doesn't even want to. Residents actually prefer to keep tourism to a minimum. They're proud of their sustainable local agriculture - every product that comes from El Hierro will soon be organic. UNESCO has made the island a biosphere reserve for its focus on ecological alternatives. The other Canary Islands are also learning from El Hierro's approach.
The 2017 American Renaissance Conference: "Turning the Tide." Helmuth Nyborg, professor emeritus of the University of Aarhus, begins by pointing out the clear relationship between distance from the equator and both brain size and intelligence. At or close to the equator, the average IQ is 69, whereas at a latitude of 54 degrees the average is 98. Prof. Nyborg observes that races could be logically be classified as “eco-types,” since their traits reflect the ecological niches in which they evolved. Prof. Nyborg also notes that unlike the north/south gradient in IQ there is no East/West gradient, virtually proving that it is the challenges of a cold climate that have forced northern peoples to evolve higher intelligence and a greater capacity for cooperation. He points out that Arabs have ...

In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate. Resources: The Columbian Excha...
Together, we are the greatest political union in history. The most powerful economy. Together we are the third largest population. The strongest army. Together we are science, health and culture. Together, we are creating a better world. We are discovering new worlds. Together, we are leading the ecological transition. Together, we are so many landscapes. Together, we are tolerance and progress. Together, we are education and sharing. Peace, peace, peace for ever. Together we have faced difficulties, and we will face others. But we will go through it and realize our dream. Don't listen to fear, hate and weakness. They don't have any ambition. We are the European union, and together we are unstoppable. I’m a French student and I made this video for sharing my vision on European Union st...

http://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/policy/multimedia/50-years-of-protecting-europes-environment/view Today the European Union has the most environmentally-friendly arsenal of rules in the world and has done more to tackle pressing ecological problems, such as climate change, than any other major power. But it has not always been like this. Caring for the environment did not feature in the Treaty of Rome, the document that gave birth to the modern day EU. Yet environmental problems were never far away. Europe's love affair with the car was moving into top gear, industry was busy belching out pollutants and raw sewage was being pumped into our rivers and seas.
During the development of the project the students held some activities such as taking part to the conference about “Olive Oil and its Importance for our Health”, experiments of physics at school, guiding the group with translations during the visits in Palermo, etc.

"European Forests: Central to the World We Live in" gives an overall picture of Europe's most versatile ecological infrastructure, tracing a path from south to north and from west to east. As we tour around Europe, we ask why forests continue to be so important to each region, even in the 21st century.
