In the framework of the Erasmus+ project “Climate Change in Agriculture” (CLICHA), an online session on “Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology” was held for the students at the National Institute of Agronomy of Tunisia (INAT- University of Carthage) on Wednesday, 9 December 2020. It dealt with general aspects of marine pollution and its impacts and was delivered by Prof Manos Dassenakis of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
In the framework of the project CLICHA (Erasmus+) a Videoconference has been presented by Prof. Dimitris Bendos (University of West Attica, Athens, on December 7th 2020 during the course “Groundwater contamination” at the HigherSchool of Engineers of Medjez El Bab (ESIM).
On 19-21 September 2019 in Trento (Italy), the CLICHA project has been presented during the 6th Conference of CUCS network(University Coordination for Development Cooperation, a network of 30 Italian universities), organised by the University of Trento together with the Centre for International Cooperation of Trento.
The theme of this conference, titled “CITIZENSHIP AND COMMON GOODS – University and international cooperation for safety, environment and sustainable development”, is inspired by the continuous evolution and expansion of the concept and practice of development cooperation, starting by focusing on citizenship, in its local and global meaning, and the management of common goods, long-standing issues that the current and future global dynamics continuously pose as critical issues and opportunities for a sustainable development.
The CLICHA Project was briefly presented orally in the session “Local Food Networks: Policies and Practices of International Cooperation” and a poster (see the attached file .pdf of the poster and the pictures) was exposed during the poster session planned during the conference days.
On May 23, 2019, the Agricultural University of Athens organised and hosted the “Climate Change in Agriculture” info day which drew its name from the homonymous ERASMUS+ project name.
During this academic info day, students, teachers and stakeholders were presented with the methodology aspects to assess the consequences of Climate Change, case studies demonstrating the role of smart agriculture and calculated choices into tackling the adverse consequences into crops production and examples of how livestock production is adversely influenced by the rise of the planet’s temperature. Moreover, the role of education within the frames of the CLICHA project was presented, but also Prof. Dr. Falia Oikonomou had the change to share her experience as part of a different educational project, entitled “New Agriculture for New Generation”. Finally, at the discussion part of the event, the audience had the opportunity to attend a live warm debate between the speakers and members of the academia who remain unconvinced that Climate Change exists and influences the environment. A series of facts and figures were exchanged by the debating sides leaving the final conclusions to be drawn by the participants.
