DIGITAL TRAINING COURSE “GREATIVE: GREEN STRATEGIES AND CREATIVE SKILLS FOR BUILDING RESILIENT EU PROJECTS”
FOR WHO IS THIS DIGITAL TRAINING COURSE?
We are looking for youngsters aged between 18-30 years old who live or are currently based in Sweden.
This online training course can be interesting for young people who want to learn about environmental topics and develop creative skills, but it is especially relevant for youngsters who are interested in learning how to develop resilient, green EU projects that take into account the environmental challenges as well as current societal challenges such as the Covid-19 pandemic, as we need to be creative to overcome those.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
During the training course, you will learn about linear and circular economy, environmental challenges we are facing nowadays and how to develop your creative skills (especially in connection to overcoming climate change and environmental degradation). The training modules related to the mentioned topics will prepare you for the next part: learning how to creatively develop circular EU projects (including successful project management in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic).
WHAT’S THE DIGITAL TRAINING’S STRUCTURE?
GREATIVE is a self-paced digital training course developed in Moodle, this allows you to go through the course activities whenever you want, from wherever you want!
It contains 6 modules:
Module 1: Environmental issues mainly led by production, consumption, and resource disposal
Module 2: The concept of circular economy and its main practices
Module 3: A connection between creativity, circularity, and environmentalism
Module 4: How to build successful EU projects; including choosing your topic and partners, setting your objectives and expected results, basic project management and some ideas for the activities you can implement.
Module 5: The context of the COVID-19 pandemic, its impact on EU projects, and its positive and negative environmental impacts
Module 6: A workshop with activities to develop creative skills & new ideas to foster circularity within EU projects
The average length of the training course is around 9 to 10 hours, depending on the pace of each learner. The average length of each module is 1.5 hours, although there are some that might take a little more time and others that might take less.
By the end of the course, there will also be a workshop in which we will gather all together to share our learnings from the Moodle course, and we will also come up with creative solutions that can make the EU projects more circular! The date for this workshop will be agreed with all the participants.
