Learn how to make your own education escape room with us on a topic of active citizenship and not only. The tutorials developed with the support of the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

“Secret Code for Active Citizenship” is a project created by NGO members of 4 countries with the main moto “Get Active into Citizenship” in June 2019.”Secret Code for Active Citizenship” was born from the need of the consortium towards the increasing importance to train youth and youth workers to work on active citizenship in a different and innovative way, through Educational Escape Rooms, in order to promote their motivation and empowerment. The project lasts for 26 months and contains innovation.

 

The project will cover Poland, Sweden, Portugal and Romania. Having good geographic coverage, we hope, in the future, to enlarge its implementation to other countries. More than inspirational solutions, we want to be able to tackle some of society’s pressing challenges, pushing Europe to the forefront of innovation.

 

We want youth to become the next “change makers” of their local/global communities, meaning active citizens that have, not only, the skills and capacity to engage, as well as a sense of self-worth, purpose, awareness and social responsibility, creating a European Network. Together with youth workers aware and skilful for addressing youth needs and partners empowered with a cross-sectorial knowledge and a European strong network.

What are our key objectives?

  • promote the exchange of good practices among NGOs and other local entities;
  • create an innovative Change Makers Training Experience and mobile escape rooms kits, addressing active citizenship in youth;
  • increase the sense of initiative and entrepreneurship in youth at a local/global level;
  • foster active participation and active citizenship in society;
  • contribute to the sense of belonging as European Citizens and motivate participants to learn more about the EU, creating a European Network;
  • invest in the capacity building of youth workers promoting high-quality work and innovative methods of reaching out to youth using escape rooms.

WHAT WE DO

Our main aim with the project is to help youngsters to better understand the concept of active citizenship in order to become valuable members of their communities. At the same time, through our project, we will provide youth workers with valuable, innovative educational tools – i.e. escape room kits and active citizenship training program – meant to improve their ability to train youngsters on topics related to active citizenship.

 

Furthermore, we will provide youth workers as well as other organisations with the tools – i.e. video tutorials – for building their own educational escape rooms and the way to use them with educational purposes. We are certain that through our project we will contribute to local communities as we will further improve the quality of active citizenship and youth training abilities in those communities, something that will have a multiplier effect across each community.

How we will do that

We plan to create video tutorials and portable escape rooms kits on creating/using/building the escape rooms on active citizenship. After, we will develop a Training Experience “Change Makers Academy” that applies this tool and much more in the promotion of Active Citizenship with local youth.

We will address subjects that we consider crucial in “life” as Human Rights, local and EU active participation, intercultural dialogue and social entrepreneurship. Simultaneous, transnational and local activities will occur as pilot tests of the innovative material. We want youth to become the next “change makers” of their local/global communities, meaning active citizens that have, not only, the skills and capacity to engage, as well as a sense of self-worth, purpose, awareness and social responsibility, creating a European Network.What’s more, we want to be able to tackle some of society’s pressing challenges, pushing Europe to the forefront of innovation.

After developing the intellectual outputs, we will do dissemination work. It will start among youth, youth workers, educators ect. so the results can be transferred and last for decades and be used in daily life.

How can we combine escape rooms and education? And how can we find the code for active citizenship?

Logos alongside our beautiful partners were trying to find the tools to answer those questions within C1-Short-term joint staff training events – “Escape Rooms Portable Toolkit”.

📍 First, we tried a classical commercial escape room. It was huge fun! And it helped our participants to see what types of puzzles and storylines could be used.

📍 Second, our Swedish partners from the „Awesome people” organisation showed us their two educational escape rooms on islamophobia and democracy. And it was even more fun! Did you know that in order to create an escape room you don’t need anything special but just a few paper cards, an old laptop and a bit of fantasy?

📍 Later on we moved to the practical part. Our participants tried to create their own stories, puzzles and learnt the some of important rules.

Thank you guys, it was amazing!

Do you know that you can solve puzzles and educate yourself on social issues?

Yes, it's possible! And Logos team knows how to do this, as well as want to share the knowledge with others. Our amazing Marko Boyko and Emir Shevkiev delivered two-days training on educational escape rooms.

«I havenʼt had previous experience with educational escape rooms before! But now I see they can be informative, and you can find out more about the topic. And the whole concept is super great» – Miruna, our participant from Romania says.

And we totally agree!

Yesterday we had a second Transnational Project Meeting of KA2 Secret Code for Active Citizenship. Our partners were welcoming us in Cascais, Portugal. All 4 partners(Portugal, Poland, Sweden and Romania) finally managed to meet offline! The meeting has been really productive with lots of check ups and following action plans to meet the deadlines for the next year to come. We have had the detailed overview of the whole project process,created intellectual outputs and publications. More news to come! So excited to share with all of you!

👉MAIN CHALLENGES DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC🔬

The outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic is the perfect storm that corroborates the magnitude of upcoming challenges for democracy, cities, and citizen participation.

1️⃣The first challenge is related to the ways in which democratic regimes demonstrate their capacity to handle the current crisis.

2️⃣The second challenge builds on the concentration of more than half of the world population in cities and tells about the ways in which urban policies and initiatives tackle the impacts on vulnerable groups of the current covid-19 pandemic.

3️⃣The third and last challenge is about the ways in which forms of citizen participation arise in the time of crisis. Evidence from local participatory practices in European cities allows systematising knowledge on emerging trends.

🔊Activate your EU Citizenship now!

Steps to follow⬇️:

1️⃣Become informed!
You may know it already. The European Union is a quite complex legal and political system.What’s important however is that you have the right to know exactly what is going on. You can ask for and receive information about basically everything happening within the Union. You also have the legal right of "access to documents" of all EU institutions. These rights are enshrined in the "Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union".
2️⃣Get consulted!
The rules and laws of the European Union have a great impact on our lives, it is quite vital to know that the public decision-making process in the EU is legally required to be open and responsive. For this reason, the EU institutions are obliged to "maintain an open, transparent and regular dialogue" (Lisbon Treaty Art. 11.2.) and to "carry out broad consultations with parties concerned in order to ensure that the Union's actions are coherent and transparent" (Lisbon Treaty Art. 11.3).
3️⃣Participate!
The European Union is a modern representative democracy, in which the public exerts an influence both indirectly (via parliament) and directly (via participation). The fundamental charters, treaties and laws of the EU comply with Article 21 of the Universal Charter of Human Rights, which stipulates that ”everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country...” and, for the first time in world history, bring this principle to the transnational level.

In other words: you have all the rights and are most welcome to participate actively in the EU policy-making process, for example by joining/participating in a political party represented in the European Parliament [www.europarl.europa.eu].
