Filming the SDG's online training courses

As part of our educational project "Fiming the SDG's", we organize trainings for young people.
These trainings consist of videos, fictitious or documentary, to be watched and each followed by a small questionnaire allowing the young people to go further, to allow them to develop their reflection.

These trainings focus on different themes: climate change, social inequalities and education and living together.

They are aimed at two different age groups: 8-12 year olds and 13-18 year olds.

Trainings closed on 15th of June 2020. 

Trainings for 8-12 years

Azadi means "freedom" in Persian.

This documentary depicts the unusual transit zone that the island of Lesbos has become, through the eyes of two Pakistani refugees and a local fishing community.
