Project complete, from February 2019 to January 2022

What is it about?

“CULPEER4change” integrated the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) into local and regional curricula in seven EU countries and created more public attention for socio-ecological transformation. It brought together municipalities and NGOs in Europe, Tanzania and Bolivia around the Cultural Peer-Learning Concept (CPLC). In both nonformal and formal education (138 institutions), CULPEER4change worked with almost 350 teachers, over 1 830 children under the age of 16 and almost 1000 young people over 16.

Youth groups in the Global South organised 200 performances and 280 offline and online workshops, involving schools, youth centres and other education facilities. It developed creative workshops, video production, digital art performances, mural paintings, social media communication, and much more. All activities combined cultural peer-learning with education for sustainable development.

What changes does this project inspire?

“CULPEER4change” increased the knowledge and awareness of children and young people on the SDGs. Over 230 schools and youth centres in seven EU Member States have taken on the Cultural Peer-Learning Concept (CPLC) as a tool for SDG education. Over 24 000 young people participated in performances and other SDG initiatives. New online learning tools and open educational resources on climate change, children rights, migration, and refugee issues are used by teachers and appreciated by students and youth groups in nine countries. Finally, around 1 600 decision and policy-makers participated in conferences and workshops about SDGs and CPLC.
