Antarctic: the "School Expedition" is Underway

Can the Antarctic can play a double role as locomotive and archive for our planet’s climate? This and many other questions will be answered by climactic change experts Carlo Ossola from the National Antarctic Museum and Matteo Cattadori, Manager of the Smilla Project, which will introduce students to the Antarctic continent and the global climactic system. This is the focus of the next appointment with Studying is Sustainable, the environmental education programme promoted by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale and the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei.
