Smart Citizen Education for a greeN fuTure

Project description

Learning about the European Green Deal

The European Green Deal aims to improve the well-being and health of citizens and future generations. Drawing from researchers and experts, as well as citizen participation and stakeholder engagement initiatives, the EU-funded GreenSCENT project will develop a competency framework embracing all Green Deal focus areas, which include sustainable transport, a zero pollution Europe and the transition to a circular economy. The framework will take an approach based on participation, experience and learning-by-doing, and it will be tested in different European regions and at all education levels – from primary school to higher education and lifelong learning. Involving experts from all around Europe, GreenSCENT will roll out a pilot initiative at some 45 schools and universities.


"GreenSCENT aims at developing a competence framework embracing all the Green Deal focus areas through an iterative, participated, experience and learning-by-doing based design approach. GreenSCENT will develop the GreenComp framework using both experts and researchers inputs and advise, citizen participation and stakeholder engagement initiatives; then it will test the framework on the field, in different European regions, different educational levels (from primary schools to higher education), at different engagement levels (from observation to data collection and processing, to contribution to scientific and policy agenda). Pilots will implement a range of pedagogies (collaborative learning, debate, research-based learning, inquiry-based learning) and demonstrators, digital, physical and hybrid educational technologies designed for or integrated into the project from existing initiatives. GreenSCENT legacy will consist of the Competence Framework (GreenComp), its Methodolog, Use Cases, User Guides; Training kits codesigned for implementing the framework; SCENTbox, the set of digital, physical and hybrid demonstrators developed by the project; and ECCEL, a European ""driving license"" for Climate and Environmental competences and skills, that will be tested during the project. GreenSCENT activities will involve more than 100 experts including the External Advisor Board members, already supporting the project and coming from all European Regions; about 45 schools and universities across EU will implement the pilot, while the Open Innovation Challenges designed and implemented by Agorize will cover the entire European Union and impact on tens of thousands of citizens. A special attention will be devoted to promote and foster the adoption of the framework, through the several tools developed, involving stakeholders (educational institutions, policy and decision makers, HR and industries) in the exploitation strategy of the project."
