ClimateInfo is a source of information about climate change in the Ukrainian language. The Information Centre on Climate Change, “ClimateInfo,” was established in 2009 as a result of the British Council project “Challenge Europe. More action – Less carbon”, with the support of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. Volunteers create materials and translate articles on the latest climate change research, inventions, economic trends and environmentally-friendly lifestyles.
