This project has two prominent "patrons" – the climate pioneers Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg. These two are planning to circumnavigate the planet in 2013 in their solar-powered aircraft, the "Solar Impulse", hoping that this will send out a message regarding our dependence on fossil fuels. Together with myclimate and Swisscom, they are now searching for tomorrow's climate pioneers, granting all participating classes an exclusive insight into their work with the “Solar Impulse”.
Along with the project comes the brand-new teaching aid "Climate Hours for Climate Pioneers" developed by myclimate. It supports the implementation of climate projects with teaching suggestions for the areas of consumption, mobility, habitation, renewable energy, biodiversity and the consequences of climate change.
