Every year, GASAG and the state of Berlin organize the “Berlin Climate Schools” competition. It promotes projects and activities with which Berlin schools contribute to greater climate protection and adaptation to climate change.

In 2021, ideas are needed that give climate protection more speed: projects in schools, ideas for climate-friendly behavior in culture, sport, politics and business. The ideas should be able to be implemented quickly and ideally lead to concrete CO2 savings. A team of at least three Berlin students must have worked on the idea. The formal submission is made by a member of the educational staff (teacher, educator) of a school or an extracurricular place of learning.

What you can win

The participating students can expect prizes totaling 6,500 euros as well as a class trip to a school.

Berlin climate schools in conversation

Three of the winning teams will also bring the “Berlin Climate Schools” into conversation with a person of their choice: they can thus enter into an exchange with climate activists, entrepreneurs and politicians. Because many people are committed to more climate protection. The interviews are professionally prepared and accompanied.

Procedure and dates

The process is very simple: ideas may be submitted from the start of the 2021/22 school year. Please use the form under Downloads. The ideas submitted are regularly reviewed by the jury approximately every six weeks and, if necessary, awarded prizes immediately. A possible climate meeting is then arranged together.

By the way: Projects already carried out in the previous school year 2020/21 can still be submitted, as the competition could not take place this school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
