Climate Kids is a “transatlantic network of schools that are trying out a creative approach to a climate change curriculum.” Students from both Germany and the United States cooperate and discuss potential solutions to climate change related issues at the local level.
“Wunderbar Together brings together Germans and Americans; both countries deal with climate change in similar ways! We’re both car countries, we’re both industrial countries; we’re also two countries that are in the lead in the world; we’re role models for everybody else,” said Brendan O’Donnell of the Ecologic Institute.
