Evolution of life is a website offering original teaching materials about the evolution of life. Evolutionary concepts and evolutionary biology as a modern and relevant science are explained and shown through animation movies (the origin of life as seen by the water molecule Piccolina), documentaries (the effect of human actions on the evolution of animals) and simulations (the states of water, the movement of tectonic plates, ...). These teaching resources can be accessed by everyone who wishes to learn more about evolution.
The MEDEA Organising Committee submitted a proposal to the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), Key Activity 4 (Dissemination and exploitation of results of the programme) which was approved in 2008. This proposal was for a project entitled "MEDEA:EU" and its purpose was to enhance, strengthen and complement the European dimension of the MEDEA Awards and to allow for a transfer of the experience and learning that has taken place within the short-listed entries through several actions designed to enhance and extend the work undertaken up to now.
This project is funded with support from the European Commission. This publication reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
