CLIMATUBERS – INFLUENCERS FOR CHANGE: Participatory Video and Digital Storytelling against climate-driven inequalities
The project CLIMATUBERS- INFLUENCERS FOR CHANGE is a project funded under the Erasmus + Programme, KA3 Social inclusion and common values: the contribution in the field of education and training.
The Overall Objective of the project is to use the Participatory Video and Digital Storytelling to articulate narratives around environmental justice and climate change-driven inequalities.
The project will work with local communities to:
– Identify how environmental issues and climate change effects can lead to deeper inequalities and increased vulnerability of some social groups.
– Imagine possible futures
– Show how vulnerable communities are affected by these using their own narratives and voices.
– Engage these vulnerable communities in producing a participatory video for describing the situation.
– Empower them in digital communication and dissemination aspects of the films as an overall process of empowerment to defend their views against other social agents.
Through the use of Participatory Videos and online-based dissemination campaigns, the beneficiaries will acquire new digital skills related to the creation of visual contents, storytelling, and communication.
The project will involve different target groups such as:
Digitally excluded groups: focusing on elderly people as vulnerable groups both digitally and at climate level, but not only
and Youth from socioeconomic and environmentally vulnerable areas.
For the dissemination, boosting the use of PV and recommendations we will also work with:
Teachers and educators will be provided with online courses and pedagogical recommendations for the use of PV for building narratives towards environmental justice.
Social and youth workers will also be provided with those courses and recommendations, as a way to foster innovation within social services on social inclusion local actions.
Policy and decision-makers will be targeted in order to deliver policy recommendations on:
a. The need and possibilities to incorporate social inclusion approaches to their climate policies and programs, at local, regional, national and European levels.
b. Use PV as a tool for assessment and diagnosis of social needs.
CLIMATUBERS brings together 6 partners- EcoServeis and Granollers City Council from Spain, ZSI (Austria), Hespul (France), Endurae (Estonia) and TDM 2000 International (Italy) which will work towards reaching the objectives of the project for 3 years.
