TestimoniesPeople involved in environmental education and sustainable development testify
Contexts and practicesThis video gathers testimonies from people who work on a daily basis in environmental education and sustainable development in the territories of the ETRES programme partners.
They are therefore regularly involved in supporting ecological transition initiatives.
An evolving professionThe support of the "citizen dynamics" in ecological transition is obvious and fundamental and is part of the logical continuation of sustainable development.
This is a very recent concept that is changing the profession of environmental educators, who are increasingly in a position to support the implementation of public policies in the region by leading citizen dynamics.
A position of neutralityThe project leader often has a vision and interests to defend in a project.
For Philippe Barret, we will not defend its vision, we will take it into account in the same way as those of the other actors.
The word dynamic citizens is a bit abusive because often initiatives are public. Citizens are involved, but it is rarely them that we support
Experts' wordsExperts provide particular insight into situations, contexts, postures and professional practices. These videos illustrate the different modules of the training system.
Empowering people to actAn ecological transition project is first and foremost about taking charge of an idea or a need carried by a person, a group, a community or a group of inhabitants...
We are slowly and gradually entering into what could be called an educational process.
The concept of ecological transitionThis video discusses the concept of ecological transition. Rob Hopkins meets Colin Campbell, who founded ASPO, the international association that will study the peak oil. There is a form of urgency to change course. This video was produced by Transition Italia, the Italian ecological transition movement.
Characterize the projectThe approach is similar to that of supporting local development projects, with a few nuances. But here will be added the "characterization" of the project.
To this end, we will insist on its impact, its sustainability, its educational dimension for the territory.....
Supporting is getting closer to educatingIt is a more active and distant way of educating people or a group and sometimes to be in front, sometimes next door.
It also means contributing and participating, but in a slightly different way in order to facilitate the progress of the project and its empowerment by the people.
There is a lot of talk today about "facilitation."
A process of transformationThe educational dimension in accompaniment can be perceived in two ways:
- either from the point of view of the facilitator, or the accompanying person, and in this case he/she sets educational objectives in advance.
- we can also have the vision of informal education: it is designed to advance a person or a group... It will bring something more and different.
- Jean-Michel Cornu european expert in the field of cooperation and collective intelligence gives keys to encourage involvement in a group around a project.
Each type of proactive-reactive participant - inactive - observer - will be able to find their place, and take a step forward to further engage in a project.
Participatory evaluationThere are different ways to evaluate a project. In ETRES, we are in a position, a choice of a participatory approach, of empowering people to move towards ecological transition.
We therefore collectively chose to be in the same approach for the evaluation.
It is "participatory evaluation"...
When citizens get organizedWhen citizens spontaneously organize themselves to deal with environmental issues in their territory, how does the educational process work? What educational resources can we rely on?
These are the research questions of Michalis Fotiadis, engineer and EESD trainer, in Greece
Methods and toolsThese videos include examples of teaching tools or methods implemented under the ETRES programme.
Designing a support systemThis video presents the content of Module 3, which explores the steps involved in accompanying a participatory project:
Clarify the order, define the steps, develop a support system with a participatory and educational dimension and set up monitoring and evaluation tools.
Analysis of professional practicesFrom the moment you have a group that has experience and lived professional situations, and a certain number of questions to ask about your professional life, you can propose a sequence where you will pose a question about your work.
It is the analysis of professional practices.
World caféThis tool makes it possible to create a dynamic of dialogue around key or socially lively issues. A technique to organize the work of a group around small workshops.
This video recounts an experience conducted in Spain by Tekieroverde as part of the ETRES programme.
Put the body in motionÉmilie Guilleminot, from Graine Occitanie, analyses an animation called "alarm clock morning" through an explanatory interview.
This type of animation consolidates the cohesion of a group and allows everyone to move through an exercise that, to remain playful, gives many indications about the state of mind of each and everyone.
Il giardino fioritoThe flower garden is an activity inspired by Hervé Tullet's workshops.
Such an activity brings out the collective energy and creativity of the group, a work of art created together, each with its own subjectivity.
It is an incentive towards a better cohesion and sharing between the participants who work together in the journey
Evaluate in movementDominique Cottereau, program evaluator, leads an evaluation session on the partnership and the functioning of the project based on a simple and user-friendly principle based on three statements: "I liked", "I didn't like it too much" and "I would like that".
This process makes it possible to share feelings and evaluate the dynamics of a group and a project.
On the groundActivities implemented by the partners in their various territories of action.
Develop a support strategyA team from the Lozère environmental education network is developing a strategy to support a project on water management.
It is a question of moving from a facilitator's posture to that of a coach based on resource persons and local skills. The members of the team will discuss their vision of this support and mark out the steps.
To accompany is not to animateSandrine Cendrier , of the Lozère environmental education network is leading a work sequence on the theme of project support for students of the professional degree "Coordination of projects in environmental education and sustainable development.
It presents some pedagogical tools while distinguishing between the function of animation and that of accompaniment.
Summer camp in Aula verdeThe experience of this place in North Milan Park and its summer campus for children from 5 to 11 years old. The practice of educators and the actions we will take to preserve the environment. The importance of actions to value everything and everyone!
An ecopsychology sessionAfter an introduction on the definition of ecopsychology and the eco-centric world, exercises are proposed to an audience of adults and to be implemented in nature.
These steps can be used as a model for managing a group.
Camatta: The posture of the accompanistA guided outing in the forest with a group of young children highlights the creative skills of the participants.
This video highlights the knowledge of the environment, the awareness of the importance of green spaces, and the emotional dimension generated by the group's experience.
La Porta del parco :a participatory projectThe objective of the La porte du Parc project is to develop a municipal agricultural zone.
Its main purpose is to bring together associations, subjects, groups and families around this area in order to work on environmental sustainability, the creation of social networks and the development of local resources.
Set up a focus group (1)This video shows how a consultation group was set up to develop a space in order to take into account the impacts of this operation.
The objective is that this development project should be based on the people who live nearby.
The aim is to develop a plan that is sufficiently complete to be presented to a larger group. (Duration: 9 minutes)
Validate options (2)Once the stakes have been defined, we will move on to a validation phase: uses, objectives, needs, destination of the developments....
Participants work in subgroups on the various uses.
This video, debriefed by the facilitator, highlights the ability of working groups to self-organize. (Length of the video: 22 minutes)
Finding an agreement (3)The time comes for a decision. We come back in a focus group and we have to choose the direction of the project.
Depending on the feedback from the various workshops, points to be discussed or clarified appear.
We are moving towards the finalization of the project. (Length of the video: 12 minutes)
