EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR SCHOOL CLASSES

«Wetterfroscher» education program

Since 2017, Zurich is supporting the «Wetterfroscher» education programme devised by Meteotest, and has co-authored the module's «Weather and Climate» and «Natural Hazards»' sections. The programme is geared toward 10–13 year-old schoolchildren. «Wetterfroscher » is the first programme in Swiss schools that Zurich partners with. A comprehensive student book (in german) explains climate and weather phenomena in a way that is both playful and easy-to-understand, and encourages observations and experiments. By discussing weather-related issues, they learn how to interpret the effects of climate change, identify potential hazards and protect themselves.
