The PIKeeBB Project

Within the framework of the PIKeeBB project, various materials for vocational training and interdisciplinary teaching were developed, tested and pilot implemented. The developed offers on the topics climate change, climate change adaptation and sustainability are essential for vocational education regarding the framework of Education for Sustainable Development. In large parts they are also suitable for use in school education. To address the issues of climate change and in order to make climate adaptation in teaching realistic and practical, vocational schools need adequate resources and materials. Furthermore motivated teachers who see the teaching of the topics as relevant are needed. Today’s trainees must be qualified and sensitized to take ecological effects into account in economically oriented work processes, and learn how to develop and implement individual adaptation measures in their professional field. The project results were presented nationally and internationally at conferences and various event formats and were disseminated and implemented nationwide via workshops and further training for teachers and multipliers.

Project duration: September 2017 to February 2020

The Project Advisory Board of the PIKeeBB Project

The project advisory board had an advisory function with regard to content. The experts from different fields contributed different impulses and perspectives, which strengthened the successful implementation of the project and ensured a link with existing activities and networks.

The PIKeeBB-project Advisory Board met twice during the course of the project. During the meetings, all important questions of cooperation were discussed and the framework of communication between the advisory board meetings was defined, which was geared to the respective needs. The meetings took place at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
