EduFire Toolkit is an educational project coordinated by the Pau Costa Foundation, in the frame of the EC’s Erasmus+ programme.Education and raising risk awareness amongst future generations has a central role in the sustainability of fire prevention and the main objective of the EduFire Toolkit project is developing a set of multidisciplinary teaching resources following a Project-based Learning methodology, together with activities designed to encourage community participation, aimed at secondary school teachers and students (12-16yr) in relation to real and local challenges related to climate change and wildfire risk reduction. The project takes a transversal approach with concepts around fire, wildfires and climate change and aims to engage with the curricula of the different disciplines. Thus, it will demonstrate how they are related to each other while promoting participation, structuring the materials in different levels of concretion according to the level, rhythm and educational needs, taking into account diversity.The project-based learning methodology will be used, allowing students to acquire knowledge and key skills through developing projects that respond to real-life problems. All the resources and results of the project will be open access, useful as tools to complement the teaching and learning process, and help the educational community to address the problem of climate change, and particularly in relation to highly relevant wildfires.
