AWAЯD aims to boost awareness of future generations (mostly 8-10 years old students) towards the importance of raw materials and introduce their indispensability in our everyday life.
Raw materials are mostly taken for granted and industry and society do not consider the consequences of their running out. The AWAЯD consortium had been inspired by the series of „Life after People”. Based on this idea, pupils will be taught by a short educational video supporting by an interactive workshop on the consequences titled „What would happen if (in this case) copper disappeared from Earth?”. The teaching method created by AWAЯD contains an educational video and several other educational toolkits – e.g. mobile phone and video games. These will be applied to reach the optimal level of knowledge and to adapt their habits. Educational workshops will be held in several schools of the consortium countries where teachers will be prepared to use the teaching method in the future.
