Project Summary

Environmental challenges raise serious concerns for the welfare of current and future generations. Responses should be driven by independent but commonly reinforcing policies for environment, energy, transportation, employment, and training. In recent years, the effects of global warming have been witnessed over the world. Studies point to human action, like pollution and deforestation, as key reasons for global warming and adverse climate changes. There is an urgent need for all of us, individually and collectively, to become more aware of our environmental responsibilities.”Green energy skills for youth” is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership – Youth Program proposal that will include comprehensive collection of ‘green education’ programs and activities for youth aged between 13 and 25. The main objectives of the project is to increase awareness and competences of youth for green energies so that they will get skills on climate change, energy production, management of waste, water supply, flood management, biodiversity, etc. “Green energy skills for youth” proposal will help to improve the quality, attractiveness and accessibility of the opportunities for lifelong learning available by developing interactive mobile games and 3D simulations by user generated scenarios for acquiring transferal competencies of youth. The proposal “GREEN4U” addresses to improve the green skills, awareness and competences on education enhancing creativity and innovation by using serious games and 3D simulations as pedagogy is definitely creative, attractive and efficient learning.”Green Energy Skills for Youth (GREEN4U)“ will provide an interactive resource for youth ages 13 to 25 years old who have a passion for science, natural resources and renewable energy, like to brainstorm ideas, research and conduct experiments and have fun. In this content, there will be educational serious game scenarios where youth research and explore answers to their questions while learning valuable critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills. Games topics will be: – Climate change- Ecosystem- Energy and conversation- Pollution- Waste management and recycling- Carbon footprint Three different “Sustainable Energy Youth Academy” are planned as learning/teaching/training activities. Those activities will take place in Sofia, Maribor and Istanbul. The academies will provide space to young people, civil society or local community actors, environmental activists to learn new skills and gain experience within the renewable energy sources. At the academies, participants will gain practical knowledge and know-how on the renewable energy systems by teaching them how to build your own solar, wind, biomass or hydroelectric power, how to engage community members, how to plan the development of community energy projects, to learn how much energy we consume during our everyday activities and many other skills.”Sustainable Energy Youth Academy” innovative ways are: – A public space to promote new ideas, – Get training from local and international trainers- Quality education and training in renewable energy- Seminars and workshops to learn practical and useful skills. Main outputs of the project are:1. Scoping Report about Energy Skills2. Green Skills Games Content for Youth 3. Interactive Games for Green Skills 4. Usability evaluation, implementation phase and piloting Project consortium represents a multidisciplinary team for achieving the aims and objectives of this proposal. Each partner comes with unique expertise and experience either in the field of energy systems, environmental engineering, creativity skills, digital competencies, interactive technologies and gaming, policy makers in school or education etc. Project partners are universities, NGOs and mobile multimedia programming and development companies from Turkey, Germany and Slovenia.
