CIRCLE-LAB project is aimed at supporting the initial and continuous professional development of teachers’ profiles in accordance with the European lifelong learning approach through the application of practical and innovative tools in order to promote circular chemistry in secondary schools. CIRCLE-LAB transnational approach represents an added value for promoting a spirit of cooperation among partners where virtuous experiences of policies, projects, and practices can be shared between countries with different levels of ESD awareness, and for addressing these key challenges.
During the meeting, the partners will share the results of a training curriculum to offer to teachers/educators/tutor some practical methods for create awareness among high school students on circular economy matters, mixing technical contents and motivational and moderation strategies. Furthermore, students will be invited to participate to the presentation of the innovative game “Guardian of the Green Galaxy” and be able to provide feedback to help partners develop videos and interactive manuals.
The Objective of the Seminar for CIRCLE LAB innovative learning approach for circular chemistry in secondary educaiton is engaging the audience in the piloting and fine-tuning phase of the Intellectual Outputs 2 and 3. The audience will be divided into 4 subgroups. Three groups will give feedback on 3 Learning Units ( the Training for Trainers Program is made of 7 LUs but the core LUs were chosen) and propose educational activities to transfer these innovative topics in Secondary Education. The 4th Group will pilot the Circle Lab Game and will provide ideas and inputs for its further development
Group 1,2 and 3 are composed of adults: teachers, trainers, and other stakeholders (representative of NGOs, Companies, etc.). The participants will voluntarily join a subgroup on the basis of their preferred topic, however a balanced distribution across groups will be enocuraged (5/6 people per group), Group 4 is composed of students (max 8/10 students, however, if a higher number of students will participate a 5th group could be created.
