"Living in a Changing Climate" is an EU-funded bilateral Comenius school partnership. It aims to investigate how ecosystems and human communities can exist in an environment shaped by the climate change.
The two teams have investigated the signs of change in two different ecosystems and national parks. One is a coastal-marine ecosystem in oceanic climate (Vatnajökull NP), the other is a wetland-lake ecosystem in continental climate (Balaton Uplands NP). The teams have been to field trips an studied glaciers, migratory birds, lake-side meadows and seaside plains, salt- and freshwater ecosystems. They have observed forests, invasive species, shifting habitats, changing farming and fishing practices. They have visited research institutions and national parks, and learned through practical work how geology, climatology and biology can be combined in a meaningful way.
