INVOLEN aims to combine the skills, experience and knowledge of older people and the dynamism, energy and enthusiasm of youth to benefit protected areas of nature. To achieve this, INVOLEN introduces an innovative methodology that takes advantage of game-based, participative learning, and hands-on experiences in both real and virtual environments.
The learning experiences are enhanced by “stories” of seniors recollecting small secrets of nature, legends and biodiversity models of older times, which are stored and exploited educationally by young people through the web. The learning process is “animated” by qualified learning facilitators.
The learning methodology introduced by INVOLEN is designed to be applied widely by schools, NGOs and adult education institutions throughout Europe. Interested parties are invited to follow the learning methodology and produce a serious game on nature conservation in a protected area.
