Description

The students completed a series of activities in gymkhana or parkour format, answering questions and challenges based on the Circular Economy. The students worked in groups to solve the proposed challenges, using their creativity they solved sustainability problems with a Circular Economy mentality.

The EELISA Circular Community organized in September the activity “SPARKS: An international parkour around Circular Economy” as part of the European Researchers’ Night. SPARKS was jointly undertaken by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, the Istanbul Technical University and the Universitatea Politehnica din Bucure?ti. This event was both an educational and networking opportunity for European university and high school students. The parkour aimed at raising awareness on Circular Economy through the completion of three pedagogical challenges (Puzzle!, Earth’s Defenders, and 3R Pictionary). Up to 57 participants (among them, 35 students) joined the event and formed groups to solve the proposed challenges and to use their creativity in order to address sustainability problems with a Circular Economy mindset. At the end of the event, the organizers presented the participants the EELISA Alliance.

20 hours of preparation; 2,5 hours for development.
