The Surefoot Effect from the UK, Volontariato Torino from Italy, the Centre for Education and Entrepreneurship Support (CWEP) from Poland, and E.N.T.E.R Network from Austria have secured €170,000 worth of funding for an Erasmus+ 2-year project with a focus on communicating aspects about climate change and other environmental issues at the local, national, European and international levels.
The first part of the project will see the creation of an interactive online platform where participants will be able to learn about different topics related to a deterioration of the global environments. These will include basic knowledge about climate change and other environmental problems, as well as potential solutions to these issues based on some of the outcomes of the Intellectual Outputs of the Erasmus+ project ‘A Tale of Two Futures’ (www.tales2futures.eu). Climate justice, environmental ethics, and corporate social responsibility will also be part of the curriculum.
The second part of the project aims at illustrating the main themes covered in the platform with the aid of 50 stills and a 20-page graphic novel created by European artists. We will also use these visual components as a dissemination tool. This fun and innovative format might make it easier for participants of the programme to learn core themes, especially for those without a scientific background of the subject.
