The name ReCCE stands for Research Center for Climate Change Education and Education for Sustainable Development. The Research Center is a central scientific institution of the University of Education Freiburg for research in the field of empirical educational research in the fields of

  • Climate Change Education (CCE) and
  • Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

On the following pages you will find information about the goals and tasks of the ReCCE as well as about the people and projects that are part of the ReCCE.


We are pleased to welcome Dr. Diana Wernisch to our research team as Managing Director of the ReCCE, starting 1 October 2022. We wish her a good start and all the best for her future challenges!

On 3 August 2022 the first working session of the ReCCE members took place in room Mensa -202.

The aim of the BMBF-funded project is to strengthen pupils in heterogeneous learning groups in their experimentation skills and their self-efficacy expectations. Adaptively designed learning aids and barrier-free forms of instruction in the experimentation process will be investigated with regard to their effectiveness and differential effects. For this purpose, four hands-on STEM experiments on climate change will be developed with corresponding adaptive learning aids and barrier-free instructions. The learning aids and instructions will be transferred to a digital learning environment that will be used to accompany the experiments.

On 1 July 2022, the internal university opening of the ReCCE took place in the Senate Hall.

The BMBF-funded project EwiK started on 1 May 2022. More information about the project can be found here.
