MiGreenDeal Project research and updates

The MiGreenDEAL Project aspires to raise awareness of the climate crisis awareness among young migrants through transformative learning. The project will implement innovative practices and digital solutions in adult education in order to prepare migrants and adult educators, community leaders and mediators to become real agents of change in environmental sustainability and fight against climate change.

The project features a fantastic consortium, with partners from La Bien Paga (Spain), META4 (Austria), DISRUPTIA (Spain), and IASIS (Greece).

As work is ongoing on the project, INQS has recently been investigating best practices at a national level in the area of raising environmental awareness and commitment of youth within Ireland.

One such example is Promoting Green Skills through Games. This EU project had a central aim of developing an educational digital game in the area of sustainability education targeted at primary and secondary schools. The main outputs were:

  1. A State of the Art – with thorough research and analysis of the state of art of environmental and sustainable education in the involved partner countries
  2. A Digital Game and associated content – A mobile-first, interactive digital game and associated teaching and learning material for primary and secondary school students to help them develop the skills and knowledge necessary to promote and actively engage in sustainability within their homes and communities
  3. Toolkit for teachers – A toolkit containing guides, best practices and associated educational material to help teachers in using the game and in integrating the game in an educational setting.

The project was also highlighted as a success story related the the European Green Deal by Erasmus Plus – https://erasmus-plus.ec.europa.eu/projects/priorities-2019-2024/european-green-deal/promoting-green-skills-through-games
