Thematic conference of the Green Penguin project

20 March 2024 – Last week, the Green Penguin project hosted a thematic conference in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The conference, organised by Iskraemeco as a project promoter and project partners Municipality of Kranj, Municipality of Ljubljana, DOVES – FEE Slovenia and FEE Norway, impressed participants with its innovative approaches to experiential learning.

The project’s main result is the Green Penguin platform which offers a wide range of interactive learning materials that introduce students to topics such as climate change, energy saving and sustainable lifestyles in a fun and engaging way. Representatives from Hinko Smrekar Elementary School and Jože Moškrič Elementary School shared their experiences with using the Green Penguin platform. Students are excited about the interactive learning approach and happy to participate in various activities, such as quizzes, creating board games from recycled materials, and a clothing exchange. During the conference, teachers praised the platform as it allows them to integrate digital technologies into teaching in an innovative way and encourages students to become active citizens.
