GLocal: Think Global, Act Local
Our project aims to create in-depth awareness about climate change and gather ten simple and practical solutions for sustainable living. At the same time, we will develop a platform for eLearning where all the project activities and results will be uploaded and made available as OER. The project has started from the following realities: -sustainable living is a “must” for people of all ages; therefore, we decided to involve all levels of education: preschool, primary, secondary, high school, university, and adults – “action IS awareness, but awareness IS NOT action,” that is why we will further gather and put into practice 10 simple ways to ACT for the environment.
The project is intended to last 2 years, from September 2020 till August 2022 and it will be carried out by six European partners.
Eruditus Language School – Switzerland
RJ4All International Institute – UK
Colegiul de Arta “Carmen Sylva” – Romania
Inercia Digital – Spain
Lycée Beauséjour Narbonne – France
I.ova Youth Art & Culture – Turkey
During the 1st TPM in Narbonne, the GLocal teams met for the first time. Each country presented their research results, and the project's next steps were discussed.
The first LTT of the project was organized by Beausejour high school. The meeting was held in Narbonne on 19-20-21st April 2022. Representatives of four project partners attended the meeting: Eruditus school, RJ4ALL, Incirliova, Genclik Kultur Sanat, and the host partner Association Scolaire Beausejour. Partners Inercia Digital and Colegiul de Arta Carmen Silva attended the LTT online.
The host students had prepared a multitude of workshops addressing climate change and sustainable living principles. Guest partners participated along with the host students and teachers in the activities during the GLocal forum “Calling for Action.”
An exciting activity was the debate which took place after all the project partners had watched the movie. “Bigger than Us” is a very inspirational movie that introduces young people all over the world who deal with big problems of our time: climate disruption, human rights abuses, lack of access to education, etc.
The program continued with the Climate Fresk (an effective tool for education), which was set up to engage the Glocal Erasmus partners in an activity that had as its main aim to raise climate science awareness.
Our team has prepared a Kahoot quiz on pollution (our topic within the GLocal project) and played with all the participants of the LTT. The quiz can be freely accessed and played here.
