On February 20th, 2023, Association of Ecotourism in Romania (AER) organised their piloting with school pupils and youngsters.
The piloting was organized in partnership with Schubz Center Romania, as they work on a daily basis with young people from the community. SCHUBZ Center develops and carries out action-oriented projects for pupils with experiential training and methods in the field of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). They aim at changing the mentalities of people through ESD and innovative approaches to living harmoniously with nature in Romania.
The piloting took place in Râșnov, Romania, on February 20th, 2023 and the meeting was face-to-face. The ten participants that attended the event are teenagers that are usually involved in volunteering at Schubz Center. During the piloting they were introduced to the online platform and to the online learning resources of the DIGITALROUTES platform. The participants were asked to give feedback on the platform and the online learning resources. The participants found all the resources very useful and they were very interested to do the online course.
Viewing the developed materials of the project.
Young people considered that this is an opportunity to learn about cultural tourism and to get involved in the active promotion of their town. They have also shower interest to create a route that will be later published on the website, as currently, their town lacks any coherent tourism promotion. Because they need some time for research-creation, it was agreed to send the information at a later stage. All in all, they said that it was a great learning experience and they look forward to go through all the learning materials from the platform.
