We are often overloaded with misinformation that may confuse climate change with atmospheric events. Indeed, climatology is the study of climate, describing the average state of weather and all the phenomena occurring in our atmosphere at different spatial scales.
This training session is targeted towards secondary school teachers and aims to be a collaboration opportunity for Italian scientists (at the forefront of climate change science) and teachers (tasked with transferring updated and reliable knowledge to the future generations). Physical and chemical principles at the basis of climate system will be discussed, along with climate evolution, with an emphasis on the changes in the last ten thousand years.
The impact of climate on resources availability, particularly water, will be covered in detail. Complex topics need to be communicated clearly following precise communication rules that will be illustrated in the training session. The timing of this activity at the beginning of the school year will allow teachers to include the acquired knowledge and materials in their teaching plan for the 2018/19 school year.
