Partners meeting in Wroclaw
A gathering for the “Shift2Green” Erasmus+ Project took place on December 05-06.2023 in Wroclaw, Poland, where consortium partners convened for a 2-day workshop. This meeting aimed at promoting and disseminating the project’s goals of enhancing environmental awareness and green skills among SME employees and managers through gamification. The workshop, hosted by Ekopotencjal, led to the creation of 10 promotional materials and brainstorming on 6 key topics related to sustainability at the workplace. Participants gained hands-on experience using design tools for crafting engaging content. Additionally, the focus on offline promotions led to the development of gamified materials like bingo cards, quizzes, and gadgets, all designed on recycled materials to align with the project’s sustainability objectives.
Partners meeting in Klaipeda
The European project partners of the Shift2Green – Promoting Eco-friendly Habits at Work with Gamification met on August 23-24, 2023 for a trailblazing project meeting in Klaipeda, Lithuania.
The main goal of the “Shift2Green” project is to promote increased environmental awareness and develop the competencies of employees and managers in small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of sustainability. By using innovative approaches such as gamification, the aim is not only to promote environmentally friendly ways of thinking, but also to integrate sustainable habits into everyday work. During the two-day meeting, participants worked intensively on implementing these goals.
The participants focused on the concretization of gamification content and developed sustainability tasks for employees and team leaders in order to bring about positive changes in everyday working life.
Particular attention was paid to structuring the missions in the planned sustainability game.
One of the next milestones in the project is the piloting of the game content at the end of the year. This first pilot version will serve to test the developed concepts in practice and gather valuable feedback to guide the project towards its final implementation.
