Russia has launched a new online platform изменениеклимата.рф that will allow school and university students, environmental activists and anyone who is interested to receive the latest scientific information on climate change. Anyone can learn how to acclimatize, how to contribute to countering climate change and to adapt to its consequences in everyday life.The project was launched as a result of international cooperation of many world organizations and leading universities from different countries.

Information is presented in an interactive format. The project includes several options.

— Play-based lessons for school students in grades 1-4 and grades 5-11, each of which contains a detailed scenario, animated presentation, cards for play-based assignments, an instruction booklet, a methodological guide and video instructions. In addition to the universal information block for all Russian regions, this section includes lessons on regional climate change in the Arkhangelsk and Murmansk regions and the Nenets Autonomous Area.

— An international distance course on climate change around the world and the risks and damage from climate change in different countries, in the framework of which leading German experts consider the issue from different perspectives: physical, economic and social.

— Lectures on the entire range of climate issues — natural and anthropogenic climate change, trends and forecasts for Russia and the world. Some lectures are devoted to specific topics: the Arctic and the Paris Climate Agreement; the Arctic regions of Russia – the Arkhangelsk and Murmansk regions and the Nenets Autonomous Area; and also to subjects like “Forest and Climate” and “Adapting to Climate Change.”

— An online venue for NGOs and activists (to be launched soon).
