The launch of CLUVEX
posted by Milla Millasnoore on 5 December 2023

CLUVEX (Climate University for Virtual Exchanges) is a 3-year project carried out in collaboration with four universities from Finland, Denmark, Ukraine and Armenia.

The project aim is to bridge students from European and Neighbourhood East universities and to engage them with climate competences e.g., ideas of adaptation and mitigation to climate change and the green agenda together with interdisciplinary, green and soft skills. The CLUVEX thematic areas include 1) Climate action, environment and nature protection, 2) Environment and climate change and 3) Green skills.

The project's main activity is the interactive online courses including traditional education materials in a way that students, professors and teaching assistants will work together in small groups. There will be, for example, international workshops on Zoom for students, focusing on topics related to climate change and sustainable development. In 2024, we will launch an open call for moderators for Zoom workshops for students, focusing on topics related to climate change and sustainable development. These workshops will be held over one week once per semester between 2023-2026. More information coming soon.

During this project, Bioart Society will introduce artistic perspectives on how contemporary art contributes to the public climate change discourse in the form of VE lectures and creative exercises.

The partner associations include Odessa State Environmental University Ukraine (UA), Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (UA), Yerevan State University (AM), University of Copenhagen (DK) and University of Helsinki, Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR) (FI) which leads the project.

Climate University for Virtual Exchanges is co-financed by European Union within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme.
