The illustrated children’s book was created by year six and seven students and highlights the carbon capture and storage (CCS) process. The book was launched at the 2014 National CCS Conference in Sydney, Australia.
In June 2013 the European Council agreed on a comprehensive approach to combat youth unemployment. This report shows that the European wind industry can play a key role in combatting unemployment.
This document is designed to introduce teachers and students to carbon capture and storage (CCS), one of a number of low-emission energy technologies. These materials are part of CSIRO’s CarbonKids, a program now in over 230 schools around Australia that helps school communities understand one of the most challenging issues facing the world today – climate change – and the issues around it, including energy technologies, adaption and mitigation. CarbonKids combines the latest science with inquiry-based education.
In July 2011, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) conducted a review and analysis of a variety of carbon capture and storage (CCS) education materials currently available to be used by schools both in Australia and internationally. The materials were found to have a number of shortcomings, for example, some of the resources were lacking in teaching strategies and did not situate the information in the context of climate change. As a result of this analysis, CSIRO developed a set of CCS educational resources and conducted a trial and review of these resources in a sample of Australian and international schools. The resources were also reviewed by several Australian-based curriculum officers.
The scope of this report is to identify academic perspectives and programs in the areas of CCS and carbon management currently available in the United Kingdom (UK). The information assembled in this report was sought from the internet, email contacts and visiting key universities in CCSM in the UK. This report addresses the major findings and discusses the current landscape of CCSM education in the UK.
