How Can We Change the World? Part 1

Changing the world might seem like a daunting task, but it begins with small, intentional actions that collectively create significant impact. Here are some key ways we can all contribute to making the world a better place:

1. Educate and Raise Awareness

Knowledge is power. By educating ourselves and others about global issues such as climate change, social justice, and poverty, we can raise awareness and inspire action. Schools, communities, and online platforms are excellent avenues for spreading knowledge and fostering a culture of awareness and responsibility.

2. Advocate for Policy Changes

Individual actions are important, but systemic change is crucial for long-term impact. Advocacy involves pushing for policies that address pressing issues. This can be done through voting, participating in campaigns, or engaging in dialogue with policymakers to support legislation that promotes sustainability, equality, and human rights.

3. Volunteer and Get Involved

Volunteering your time and skills to causes you care about can make a significant difference. Whether it’s cleaning up local parks, helping at food banks, or mentoring disadvantaged youth, every bit of effort contributes to the greater good. Community involvement fosters solidarity and demonstrates the power of collective action.

Peipsi Center Seminars

In the end of November 2023 Peipsi Center for Transboundary Cooperation had a seminar/discussion evening of the project together with partners and experts who have participated in the different edularp project where discussion about how the topic of educational role-plays could and should be moved forward.

We met people from different sectors (from ministry of education, universities, environmental NGOs, local schools and educators from nature education) and we had an Open Table Discussion that aimed to discover possibilities for a collaborative effort to explore and integrate EduLARPing into the national educational landscape. The main idea is that there is a need to do more training and seminars and create more open source scenarios and create more syllabus specific games like games understanding  the optics etc.

Global educational role-playing Estonia

 In the spring of 2023, 10 schools participated in the project ”Global educational role-playing as a supporter of formal and non-formal learning in the topics of global and climate justice” led by the Peipsi Cooperation Center. The research revealed that role plays are used quite often in the subject lessons. There were more of those who use the pig method in their studies at least once a year, a total of 63%. 37% of respondents had not used it at all. It was also surprising that almost a quarter of the respondents used the role play more often than 5 times. Among them there were respondents who also mentioned that about ten times or even 15-20 times a year. Role plays would be needed in all levels of school. From the survey, it was found that a little more is needed for students from the second grade. The topics for which role play scenarios are needed are primarily related to the environment, history, humanities, multiculturalism, nature studies and many social topics. “GreenEduLarp, co-founded by the European Union, Erasmus+ Cooperation partnerships in school education.”
