Events & Youth Opportunities

Student Training & Workshop,19 March 2024

Location: Volksschule Brüßlgasse in Vienna

On March 19th 2024, the Innovative Education Center took a significant step towards environmental education by conducting a compelling workshop and a multiplier event at Volksschule Brüßlgasse in Vienna. These activities are a part of two forward-thinking Erasmus+ funded projects: "2021-1-PL01-KA220-YOU-000029219 Green Three Seas Initiative for Youth" and “2021-1-MT01-KA220-SCH-000032700, Learning by Doing: Experiential Learning in Formal School Education.” These projects are closely aligned with the European Union's visionary goal to realize a climate-neutral continent by 2050, focusing on the comprehensive aspects of ecological transformation as envisioned by the European Green Deal. In today's era, as the call for environmental sustainability grows more vital, our project is committed to equipping the upcoming generation with necessary knowledge, skills, and prospects to actively participate in and benefit from the green transition. Acknowledging the pivotal role of educational establishments in driving this change, we were thrilled to collaborate with Volksschule Brüßlgasse to deliver a presentation aimed at empowering young minds. About Learning Doing: Experiential Learning in Formal School Education: This project is at the forefront of integrating experiential learning into both formal and informal educational frameworks. Our mission is to elevate students' essential skills, including critical thinking, adaptability, civic responsibility, and environmental stewardship, through dynamic and hands-on experiences. We aim not only to enrich the educational journey of students but also to provide educators with a wealth of resources for professional growth. By weaving innovative elements into the curriculum that nurture imagination, creative and critical thinking, we champion inclusivity and ensure that learning is accessible to all students, including those with disabilities. Our ultimate goal is to cultivate well-rounded, engaged, and environmentally conscious learners. We are thrilled about the opportunity to collaborate with your esteemed institution to make this enriching educational experience available to your students and staff.

Artistic Expression and Visionary Insights: A highlight of the session was an art workshop conducted by a renowned artist from the IEC. This portion of the event gave participants a unique opportunity to express their understanding of climate change and envision a sustainable future through their artwork. It served as a powerful platform for the youth to transform the insights gained during the workshop into vibrant, creative narratives that reflect their hopes, fears, and dreams for the planet. This artistic venture was not only a channel for creative expression but also a strategy to reinforce the workshop's learning outcomes, encouraging students to ponder their role in promoting environmental sustainability. The artwork produced stands as a poignant reminder of the impact that each individual can make in fostering a greener, more hopeful future.
