This is a project which addresses the issue of plastic invasion of our communities and households with a purpose to bring the message of a safe and healthy environment closer to the citizens through civic education enabled by land art installation.
Five organizations decided to use their capabilities and expertise to produce a Moodle based e-learning platform with a content capable to serve the project needs. The content includes 5 tutorials : info-doc , land art installation centered civic events, digital skills needed to handle the Moodle based platform, socio-civic skills required to shape civic events and dissemination to support the profile and follow-up of the e-learning platform. Each tutorial includes examples of good practice and an evaluation chapter. Anydoby using the platform should be able to design a civic event to their own needs.
The partners' staff act as content developers and are trained by the platform maker on how to use it to be able to design and organize land art installation centered civic events with different community groups such as children, seniors, disadvantaged people, youth, artists.
A number of on line sessions and short staff training sessions strengthen the empowerment of the staff for becoming proficient platform users capable to train others on how to do it for their own purposes.
All activities are monitored and evaluated by a Project board set up at the very start.
Four multiplier events bring together professionals from the organizing country and neighboring parts of Europe to make known the platform and it capabilities, show the local land art installation centered civic events and organize contact seminars to prepare partnerships around project ideas for new applications.
At the end of the project there is an European consortium in place with a leading team, a joint pool of trained staff capable to provide training and development support when needed, a joint website, a joint e-learning platform and a number of partnerships and project ideas ready for new applications. We believe this is a good model of sustainability .
The project partnership include a variety of organizations from Romania (coordinator - seniors organization), Spain (ICT company), Italy (land art installation artists ), Lithuania (civic adult learning), Bulgaria (dissemination).
