Venue: 7-14 October 2016, Tenerife, Spain

Description

GREEN GAMING is a training seminar to learn, create and share new tools for non-formal education, based in gamification techniques, in order to apply them to environmental education activities and make them more attractive to the youngsters.

During 8 days, the 24 youth leaders, youth workers and trainers of 9 countries in Europe, will work together in Tenerife to learn how to use game mechanics in natural environments, in order to enhance motivation, concentration, effort, loyalty and other positive values common to all games.

During the seminar, participants will share some examples of success and have the opportunity to create new tools, based on the concepts of Deep Ecology, that will be implemented with young people living in rural areas of the South of the Island. And finally will be shared on the Net so they can be implemented by all groups working in the field of environmental education. The best game is the one where you don´t realize that you’re playing. Through play we learn to motivate young people to acquire sustainable life habits and consciousness of being part of nature in which they live. And it is that the game is, has been and will always be, part of human nature.
