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 is heavily focused on research into the area of personal reflection and action planning.
Action planning is a natural continuation to the reflection process and is focused on developing a plan of action to put the results of the reflection and the associated experiential learning into practice in the real world. If personal reflection can be thought of as a blueprint, the action planning is the process by which action is actually taken.
An associated area within this process is Transformational learning, also known as transformative learning, is a learning theory relating to how people make sense of their life experiences. It’s an extension of constructivism, a framework that states every learner constructs their own meaning based on the interaction of new knowledge with previous knowledge.
