Animation film on global climate change produced at UNN
The Competence Centre for Carbon Management at Lobachevsky University has produced an animation film about the global climate change problems. Among other things, it explains in a clear way the causes of these changes and why natural hazards occur more frequently and increase in magnitude.
The animation was prepared as part of the "Comfortable Environment" strategic project of the Priority 2030 strategic academic leadership programme. The team of the UNN Competence Centre for Carbon Management plans to show the animation film in schools and conduct climate lessons.
"It is very important for us to expand our network of supporters and people who care about the global climate change issues and who will work with us to raise awareness about global climate change, for example by making such animation films, and by engaging in science and education. First and foremost, this is necessary for young people, because they and their children will be living 50 years from now. What kind of climate we'll have, and more generally whether we'll have the necessary conditions for life, depends on what we're doing now. So we invite students who care and who are interested to join us," said Vladimir Yuvonin, Head of the UNN Competence Centre for Carbon Management.
The film will be made available on the website of the UNN Competence Centre for Carbon Management. This resource will provide all relevant information on the issue, as well as a library on legal regulation, a glossary of climate change terms and a carbon calculator.
It was previously reported that experts from the UNN Competence Centre for Carbon Management have developed a calculator that can be used to calculate the carbon footprint. It is primarily intended for school and university students.
The Competence Centre for Carbon Management was established at Lobachevsky University in 2022 as part of the "Comfortable Environment" strategic project of the Priority 2030 strategic academic leadership programme. It is a platform that brings together leading experts in the field of CO2 management and young people. One of the Centre's tasks is to help Russian industry meet the new legal requirements for greenhouse gas emissions.
