CDDC Conference “Crowddreaming: Youth Co-Create Digital Culture

22 Feb, 2021

CDDC project consortium invite you to join the online conference “Crowddreaming: Youth Co-Create Digital Culture” on 25 March 2021 at 14:00 – 17:15.

Crowddreaming: Youth Co-Create Digital Culture (CDDC) is an Eramus+ project that started in January 2019. The project aims to scale up an Italian good practice in the field of the valorization of digital cultural heritage as a means for inclusive education and the promotion of European values among youngsters. In the last two years, we developed a curriculum and MOOC to train the teachers in schools on how to use the methodology with their students. This results of the CDDC methodology are “digital scenes” by students across Europe and put together in a digital monument – Europa Square.

The online conference aims to present the results of the project. But not only that. The event will offer food for thought with two interesting keynotes from experts in the field of digital cultural heritage and innovation and provide a space for discussion with the representatives of different stakeholders (NGOs, European Commission, European Parliament) on why we need stronger collaboration between cultural heritage and education sectors across Europe.

Finally, you will have the opportunity to explore Europa Square, the pinnacle of our project. It hosts 80 digital scenes created by 80 groups of students under the mentorship of their teachers from Croatia, Greece, Latvia, and Italy. The platform showcases the successful scaling up and implementation of the Crowddreaming methodology. Project partners will present the lessons learned and recommendations to educators and policymakers on how to use the methodology as a mean for inclusive education and the promotion of European values among young people.
