Questionnaire for parents

The questionnaire is provided in the framework of the project: 

“Location-sensitive game-based training of school youth for the reduction and control of CO2 emissions – ECO-SCORE – 2021-2-CY01-KA210-SCH-000050073”

The questionnaire aims to investigate the degree at which air pollution is included in the school curriculum, as well as the current practices employed by the school regarding improving air quality and educating students accordingly.

Air pollution can be defined as the presence of toxic chemicals or compounds (including those of biological origin) in the air, at levels that pose a health risk. In an even broader sense, air pollution means the presence of chemicals or compounds in the air which are usually not present, and which lower the quality of the air or cause detrimental changes to the quality of life (such as the damaging of the ozone layer or causing global warming).
