About the project

The ACDC project will create and validate open-access learning and teaching resources for inclusive climate change education through art & design.


There is a need for an integrative and cross-curricular approach in climate change education (not only in science class but through STEAM) – arts and design can play an important role in engaging people with new perspectives on climate change.
There is a need for a positive and constructive approach (trying to avoid apathy or anxiety); students need to feel motivated and part of the solution, become actors of change.
There is a need for an inclusive approach (both from artists/designers and teachers). People from more modest social/economic backgrounds have more obstacles to deal with when taking action to fight climate change: they have fewer means to choose alternative transport, work as a volunteer, isolate their houses, and buy vegan food or sustainable clothes.



  • Increase awareness about climate change and sustainability.
    Stimulate young people’s imagination and empower them to co-create new scenarios for behavioral change.
  • Actively involve students from rural areas and diverse backgrounds in international and interdisciplinary collaboration.
  • Create cross-curricular learning resources with an eco-social future-oriented perspective.
  • Create awareness about the power of design to generate sustainable and inclusive solutions for individuals and communities.



  • 2 eco-creative labs, in Porto and Valencia
  • teacher training with 15-20 teachers
  • workshops with 150-200 students and other participants in 2 countries
  • open-access multimedia learning and teacher resources for secondary-school students, teachers, and other educators
