  Information - ES1 Geosciences Information for Teachers (GIFT) workshop (by invitation only)

Event Information
The theme of the GIFT-2008 workshop for teachers is "The Carbon Cycle", well in line with the recent report of the Intergovernamental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Various aspects of the cycle, such as production, diffusion in the atmosphere, the biosphere and the ocean will be examined, as well as ways of mitigation both on a global or an individual scale. The seminar will consist of seminal talks given by prominet scientists present at the General Assembly, communications and demonstrations by sciences educator, and teacher-to-teachers communications. Different discussions groups will also be formed among the teachers, under the guidance of selected moderators.
