Building digital media skills to raise climate change awareness among young people


Aims of the FOOTPRINT project are to promote quality and innovation in youth work by building the skills of youth professionals to support them to address climate change issues in their formal, non-formal and informal learning/engagement activities, to leverage the interest of young people in climate change and empower them by building their critical thinking skills especially where climate change and environmental issues are concerned and to encourage young people to be peer leaders and influencers in the fight against climate change.


The objectives of the FOOTPRINT project are:

  • to provide bespoke in-service training for front-line youth workers to enable them introduce smartphone film making into their everyday practice; 
  • to build key transversal skills of young digital natives through the design and development of an innovative film production training programme using smartphone devices; 
  • to provide a suite of educational resources that develop critical thinking skills to address climate change and motivate them to promote solutions to the many pollutions that accelerate the impact of climate change; 
  • to support young people to script, film, edit and promote thoughtful short films that address a number of critical climate change and environmental topics.

Target groups of the FOOTPRINT project are: front-line youth workers working in formal, non-formal and informal settings and young digital natives who are interested in accepting the climate change challenge and trying to instigate change.
