NEWS AND PROJECTS

ENO-Environment Online© is a global web school for environmental awareness. Four environmental themes (dimensions of sustainable development ) are studied within a school year (Social, Natural, Cultural Environment and a sustainable way of living ) on a weekly basis. ENO Program is a strong and active network of schools. It has been running since 2000 and it is administrated by the city of Joensuu, Finland. You can find the application form at: http://cc.joensuu.fi/~vanhanen/application03.htm, email Mika Vanhanen mika.vanhanen@joensuu.fi

iLEAPS Science Project iLEAPS (Integrated Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes Study) is the new land-atmosphere project within the framework of the second phase of IGBP (International
Geosphere Biosphere Programme). iLEAPS is an international multidisciplinary research program aimed at improved understanding of processes, linkages and feedbacks in the land-atmosphere interface affecting the Earth System. Specifically, the objective is to study how interacting physical, chemical and biological processes transport and transform energy and matter through the land-atmosphere interface. iLEAPS research ranges from cell level to global scale, diurnal to centennial and past to future. Integration of measurements and modeling is essential, as well as coupling of surface and atmospheric models. Participate in the 1st iLEAPS Science Conference in Boulder, Colorado, USA, 21.-26. of January 2006. The conference will highlight the relevant aspects concerning the interfaces between land-biosphere-atmosphere. For more information go to http://www.atm.helsinki.fi/ILEAPS/boulder or contact direct michael.boy@helsinki.fi

European Schoolnet News: e-Twinning in Europe
A core part of the eLearning programme launched by the European Commission early this year is the e-Twinning action. This new initiative will also be supported by a network of National Support Services with the objective to strengthen and develop networking among schools. All young Europeans, during their time at secondary school, should have the opportunity to participate, together with their teachers, in an educational project with their counterparts in other European countries. This experience could prove to be decisive in fostering a European dimension in education and awareness among young people of the European model of a multilingual and multicultural society. Internet-based learning communities will contribute to improving intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding. The e-Twinning of schools will also help update teachers' and trainers' professional skills in the pedagogical and collaborative use of ICT.

European Regions Day is celebrated in October each year to familiarise European citizens with regional European information. Xavier Tudela, the President of the European Region of the Year Organisation, stated; "This day is intended to be a new inter-European vehicle of integration which will show the regional truths of the European continent to the 46 member countries of the Council of Europe. The European Region of the Year Organisation is based in Barcelona and was founded in 2001 to highlight two European regions each year by promoting their activities to the other regions of Europe.

Two European regions were chosen for 2004, Madeira, (Portugal) and the German Speaking Community (Belgium.) In 2005 Piedmont (Italy) and Kiev (Ukraine) will be highlighted. In 2006 Vojvodina (Serbia and Montenegro) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). The initiative was started in Karelia (Russia) and Balearic Islands (Spain) in 2003.
