Climate change is a ‘hot’ issue and manifests itself in many forms. Counteracting against it is a task that concerns all citizens. Adult educators from Bulgaria, Germany, Greece and Italy work on a free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on this issue and exchange methods to make climate change a subject in adult education for all. They explore approaches to change the (climate) change towards an environmentally friendly economy in the one world – in which everyone can enjoy a good life.
European cooperation projects for adult education aim at sharing methods, creating a result together and to learn from each other, among other things by getting to know the working contexts of the partner organisations. At short management meetings or joint, longer workshops. Usually. But times are just not normal. So there was another online meeting today. The colleagues discussed possibilities to put all planned activities of the two-year project in practice and to bridge the time when all are in its ‘home zone’ and cannot travel. At the moment everyone is working on their contributions to the online course (MOOC) on climate change and is looking forward to testing its didactic parts together. In Athens, end of September. Hopefully.
Colleagues of the four participating organizations in Bulgaria, Germany, Greece and Italy met each other for a kick-off meeting. They gained various impressions from the educational activities of the Health and Social Development Foundation, the Bulgarian partner organization, and their main target group, Roma citizens. Furthermore, the whole project was planned in detail including the online course which the project partners are going to create. A fruitful starter!
