The Girls Go Circular Project funded by the European Union aims to equip 50 000 schoolgirls aged 14-18 across Europe with digital and entrepreneurial skills by 2027 through an online learning programme about the circular economy.
Girls Go Circular supports Action 13 – Encourage women’s participation in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) of the European Commission’s Digital Education Action Plan and empowers schoolgirls in European countries defined as modest and moderate innovators (according to the European Innovation Scoreboard) to become future leaders and entrepreneurs.
The Circular Learning Space is at the core of the project. It offers students the option of choosing between different learning modules on topics like metals, plastics, sustainable fashion, or electronic devices. Through the platform, students work individually and in groups during online and in-person sessions. The platform includes several modules, which explore the circular economy from different angles. These modules are based on a learning-by-doing approach, transferring knowledge and skills through an interactive, challenge-based structure.While consolidating their knowledge on the green transition, students use digital tools to acquire practical skills. After successfully completing a learning module, students receive a certificate that attests the skills acquired.
The project targets primarily girls but it is open to any learner! Start learning here!
