Conectando Mundos – Get In the Loop

"Conectando Mundus" (Connecting Worlds) is an educational proposal implemented through an interactive multilingual platform with 8 languages (Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, Galician, Catalan and Basque), through which the different classes organized in work teams interact and work together in different cooperative ways.

This project brings together activities within the classroom and work in a network composed of students from 6 to 17 years old from various cultural, economic and social backgrounds. Every year a concrete theme related to Education for Global Citizenship is worked on. “Get in the loop – um futuro em equilíbrio” (Get in the Loop - a future in balance)  (2019-2020) is the name of the new edition dedicated to sustainable development issues.


DURATION

The project lasted 24 months and took place from December 1st, 2018 to November 30, 2020.

WE PROPOSED

Promote intercultural dialogue between children and young people from different social and geographical backgrounds.

Create a cooperative and effective workspace based on the motto “think globally, act locally” using ICT (Information and Communication Technologies).

WHY
?

Achieving sustainable development means ensuring that everyone has access to the resources they need - food, water, health care and energy - so that their human rights are effective. It also means ensuring that the consumption of natural resources does not cause tension in the vital processes of the terrestrial system.

Being able to live in this safe and fair space for humanity is a complex challenge due to the fact that social and planetary environmental limits are interdependent. Environmental tension can exacerbate poverty and vice versa. For this reason, well-designed policies, new consumption and production habits are needed to achieve sustainable and inclusive development. Read more here.
