Partners of Erasmus+ Project OP4C make progress in Palencia, Spain
30 June 2023 | From UNICA
The partners of the Erasmus+ project ‘European Open Badges Passport for Climate’ (OP4C) met in Palencia, Spain, between the 19th and 22nd of June, for an extended work session to finalise the current stage of mapping eco-pedagogy activities and start planning the learning paths that will be part of the online interactive catalogue. The meeting was hosted by the University of Valladolid, one of the partner universities in the project.
The project meeting in Palencia served as a moment to follow up on ongoing work. Partners convened to assess the project’s progress, address challenges, and strategize for the future. By fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange, the meeting aimed to solidify the foundations of the OP4C project and propel it toward successful implementation.
The OP4C project is a groundbreaking initiative designed to create an open badge passport system that recognizes and rewards individuals’ climate actions. By leveraging digital technologies and open standards, this innovative approach seeks to encourage and empower individuals to actively contribute to the fight against climate change.
Where the project stands now
During the meeting in Palencia, partners engaged in insightful discussions that encompassed various aspects of the project. As the partners directly involved in educational activities are finalising the mapping eco-pedagogy activities, discussions went deeper into the design of the open badge passport system that accurately captures and rewards individuals’ climate actions. These discussions delved into technical considerations and the development of clear guidelines and criteria for issuing badges. Moreover, participants exchanged ideas on how to effectively communicate the benefits of the OP4C initiative and encourage widespread adoption.
The meeting resulted in significant outcomes that will shape the project’s trajectory. Partners agreed upon an action plan and delineated specific tasks to be accomplished in the coming months. They emphasized the importance of collaboration and community engagement to maximize the impact of the OP4C project.
As the project progresses, the OP4C initiative holds great promise for a sustainable future, where climate action becomes an intrinsic part of every individual’s journey.
The next project meeting will take place in October, in Novara, Italy. It will be hosted by Consorzio Scuola Comunità Impresa.
