2023 closed as a fantastic third year for Three o’clock. The team has grown to 7 and will continue to expand. We’ll be announcing 2 new positions very shortly. Stay tuned!
2024 has started on a roll with three new European research and innovation projects that have just kicked off for us. In these projects, we'll be engaging with stakeholders, researching users’ needs, designing the user experience and interface of an app, and bringing science closer to people through awareness and impact communication.
Here’s a snapshot of our new projects 👇
Empowering Youth and Educating Leaders for Climate Action 💪🎓
In the summer of 2022, extreme climate events in Europe emphasized the reality of climate change, with record temperatures and natural disasters. Recognizing the urgent need to address this, the NextGenCarbon project will:
- Design and implement training activities to raise awareness and guide teenagers (ages 13-18) in taking action against climate change
- Train educators
- Induce behavioral changes in individuals for climate adaptation, aligning with EU priorities on environment and climate action
These objectives will be achieved through engaging and high-impact workshops and the development of a Carbon Footprint calculator app.
Policy-Driven Health Protection: Tackling Future Diarrheal Risks in a Changing Climate 🌍👶
Diarrhea is globally the third-largest cause of death for children under 5, contributing to more than 500,000 deaths. Only pneumonia kills more children each year. Climate change, driving increased flooding and droughts, threatens the fragile progress made in reducing the burden of diarrheal disease over the past decades.
The SPRINGS project aims to inform key climate, environmental, and health adaptation policies to better measure the impact of future climate shocks on the burden of water-borne diarrheal diseases, in order to support and prepare citizens, communities, and governments.
Taking Climate Neutral Buildings a Step Further through Learning 🏢🌱
The nZEBRA project is developing a new educational course focused on Climate Neutral Buildings. It will cover critical topics such as nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB), circular economy in construction, climate change adaptation, building-integrated renewable energy systems, smart buildings, and environmental social governance strategies. The aim is to prepare current and future professionals in architecture, civil engineering, and energy engineering for sustainable building solutions.
