Natural disasters have become a reality. The environment is somehow integrated into the curricula, and 2020 is the year of Climate Change and Environmental Challenges for eTwinning. For all these reasons, we started the New Year raising awareness for this global problem, having Europeana galleries as starting points.
“Think Globally, Act Locally”
Using the PBL methodology, we urged students to reflect on the health of the planet and start taking action in their own communities. Using their handheld devices, students were challenged to identify and locate green and red posts around them and point out possible solutions, which may include contacts with the local stakeholders.
Exchanging of good practices
These documented situations are shared with our project partners in order to spread a much more responsible attitude towards environmental protection not only at our own school and the local community but also within a European network of schools, based on the exchange of good practices.
Our ambitious project is ongoing and, for our young activists, it is not going to come to an end in a foreseeable future. Not before their voices are heard. Not before their red posts turn into green ones.
Every single step of this activity is described in the Nurture Mother Nature Learning Scenario along with timings, goals, trends and skills as well as the resources used and created.
