From Bertolt Brecht to Coolio and from Euripides to the Icelandic Sagas.
How we can teach citizenship education, democracy and human rights through the use of theatre and arts? A wonderful 4-day seminar organised in the framework of the HEDA project was completed in the Topos Allou Theatre in Athens with the participation of teachers and people working in the theatre from the six project partner countries (Greece, Iceland, Italy, Belgium, Poland and Serbia).
In the framework of the seminar, the participants learned theatre techniques and examined ways through which social and political issues could be approached in secondary schools. Big thanks to the organising partner Action Synergy and participants from Dah Teatar, Hogeschool UCLL, Branżowa Szkoła and Galileo, as well as our Icelandic participants from Árskóli and Grunnskóli Grindavíkur primary schools.
After meeting online in November 2022, the Green Advisor project kickstarted with a transnational partners meeting in Turku, Finland in late January 2023.
The "Green Advisor - Enhancing environmental sustainability of EU funded projects” is a three-years Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnership in the field of Adult Education that is coordinated by GeoCamp Iceland and involves partners from Spain, Italy, Turkey and Finland. The partnership will work together addressing the need to lower the environmental CO2 footprint that Erasmus+ projects generate.
Among project outcomes are a Carbonfootprint Calculator (APP) and Green Streaming Orientation Tool to support Project Managers and Adult Educators in making their travels and communication more sustainable, while enhancing critical thinking on the environmental impact of such activities.
