EcoPodcasts EcoPodcasts: Student podcasts on eco conscious and sustainable living. Erasmus+, KEY ACTION 2: cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices ; strategic partnerships in the field of education, training and youth

The EcoPodcasts project aims to introduce a holistic educational approach that will support schools and teachers to promote environmental education by combining innovative pedagogical methods (project-based learning and experiential learning, design thinking) with the extensive use of new media and technology. In particular, by harnessing the power of broadcasting and podcasting, the project will: 

 

deliver an innovative school-based radio and podcasting programme that will guide students on an exciting journey of how to discuss, reflect and advocate for issues related to the environment and climate change. Following a design thinking approach, students from the partner countries will be empowered to become change makers and investigate environmental issues. 

 

develop a holistic and flexible teacher training programme and provide a bank of practical resources that will improve teachers’ skills in teaching environmental education, increase their confidence in using innovative methodologies and digital tools such as radio and podcasts. 

 

develop the EcoPodcasts web platform and application to become a transnational reference point and a vast repository in terms of learning resources and best practices of school radio and podcasting as attractive tools to actively engage children with climate change. We also aspire to foster the first pan-European online community of teachers, students and schools using school radio and podcasting to promote a sustainable everyday life.
