In a significant step towards fostering resilience in the face of climate change, the DREUCC Jean Monnet Module staff on April 2022 participated in a conference with a presentation entitled “Building Resilience through Interdisciplinary Projects and Studies.” The event was organized by the “Project–arCc,” which stands for “assuming responsibility for Climate change.” This initiative aims to align its outputs with a collective response to climate change, bringing together the combined efforts of 14 partners from 13 different countries. This project is funded and supported by the British Council under the open call for Creative Commissions, the project’s roots can be traced back to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Project–arCc, which seeks to unite diverse cultures and disciplines through collaborative initiatives aimed at increasing awareness and empowering individuals to take responsibility for their impact on climate change. The primary focus of the project is for participating institutions to share resources to engage young people in assuming responsibility for the planet’s well-being.
The presentation by the DREUCC Jean Monnet Module staff at the conference signifies their commitment to interdisciplinary approaches in tackling climate change and building resilience in the face of this global challenge. With Project–arCc’s ambitious goals and international collaboration, the initiative holds promise in advancing the fight against climate change.
In addition to their participation in the conference on “Building Resilience through Interdisciplinary Projects and Studies,” the Jean Monnet Module staff demonstrated their commitment to sustainability by hosting a webinar on “Sustainable Education and Climate change.” This webinar provided a platform for sharing insights, knowledge, and best practices related to sustainable education, further emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary approaches in addressing environmental and societal challenges. The DREUCC team engagement in this educational event highlights their dedication to promoting sustainability and fostering a broader understanding of the role of education in shaping a more environmentally conscious and responsible future.
