Project

ACCENT : Action on climate change through engagement, networks and tools

Description:

The ACCENT (Action on Climate Change through Engagement, Networks and Tools) project, launched in April 2009, is the result of European science centres and science museums’ decision to strengthen the efforts they make at the local level on issues of climate change. ACCENT is a European action, gathering and coordinating the practices in science communication and public engagement about climate change issues in the 15 partner institutions, and further afield. A large range of activities concerning climate change (hands-on, exhibitions, school labs, science demonstrations, games, lectures and debates) will be organised by each of the partner institutions in order to raise visitors’ knowledge and to engage people in positive actions.
