The Green European Foundation shared first-hand experience on how to build an online learning course during the European Youth Conference.
This event was a part of the programme of the European Youth Conference in Gdańsk hosted with Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung office in Warsaw.
European youth is particularly active online. According to data from 2016, 91% of youth in the EU (16-29 years old) uses internet daily, as compared to the level of general population, which was 71%.
However, only 26% of youth in the EU use online learning materials, while European Commission data from 2016 indicated that only 9% of young people participated in online courses of any subject. This data shows that there is still a lot of space for promotion of online learning amongst young people.
The Green European Foundation and Green Group in the European Parliament have initiated a project entitled Impact Europe – Online Course for Green Activists. The course taps into the potential of using digital learning environments for the advancement of green policies and the empowerment of young people to take action towards making their voice heard and shaping European democracy.
During this workshop, we shared the experience of Green European Foundation in developing e-learning programmes. Furthermore, the workshop provided an interactive space for exploring ways in which the participants can make use of new (online) technologies to advance their own learning and activities. The objectives were to:
• Enable participants to identify tools and technologies to further their own projects within their available resources;
• Motivate participants to expand their knowledge on online learning methods beyond this workshop;
• Empower participants to develop their own online learning strategies.
