NM in climate for VGS

Dear school contact!

On this page you will find everything you need to complete a climate championship at your high school!

Now it’s about inspiring students and staff at your school. With good preparation, it is entirely possible to create a lot of commitment. And the very best is if the students themselves take ownership of the project! We therefore recommend inviting students and teachers to an NM team already now.

NM in climate is also a great opportunity to create commitment around teaching in line with the subject renewal.

The competition is about achieving more than 50% participation for the whole school, and saving as much CO2 as possible on average per participant. The points are not included in the results, but can be a fun challenge internally in the classes.
