Climate Diplomacy Week in Serbia

Climate Diplomacy Week in Serbia

On Saturday, September 29th, from 10.30 am to 5.00 pm, at Ada Lake in Belgrade, one of the most important events of the Climate Diplomacy Week in Serbia was held – the whole day event “”Ada Lake Climate Village”” where citizens were presented organizations and projects that contribute to the fight against climate change and held various actions – from cycling around the lake, educational tours of biodiversity with bird watching and identification of flora and fauna to film projections.

EcoDev organized by the Climate Wall, where citizens and children wrote what actions should be taken in the fight against climate change. Citizens think that it is necessary to turn to renewable energy sources and recycling, that it is necessary to create Strategy and Action Plan against Climate Change, that plastic bags should be removed from use, that more alternative forms of transport should be used, that the education of the youngest on this subject is important, how every type of pollution should be reduced and, as a girl from the age of 8 wrote, “Everything needs to be nourished”.

Also, EcoDev processed the results of the climate change survey conducted on September 24 and 25 in elementary school “Dragan Lukic” and Fifth Belgrade High School. The total percentage of correct answers for elementary school is 56%, and for secondary 63%. The most correct answers in elementary school were to the question “Do you think a change in lifestyle would help in the process of mitigating climate change ” (96%), and in high school “How important is the rational use of natural resources?” (96%). At least the correct answers were given by the elementary school students to the question “What is the greenhouse effect? “, while the students of the gymnasium of the least accurate answers gave the question “Have you heard before about the Climate Diplomacy Week?”.
