Multiplier Event of the STEP_UP project

The Multiplier Event of the European Project STEP_UP: Stop epidemic growth through learning will be held on 9 November 2022, from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, in a face-to-face and hybrid format, at the Nursing School of Coimbra.

STEP_UP is an Erasmus+ project, coordinated by SHINE 2Europe, which during the last two years has developed a training tool based on an educational game, which aims to raise awareness of the impact of behaviours in the spread of a pandemic/emergency situation. This training material is aimed at adult education, with particular emphasis on community leaders, informal carers and volunteers, social and health professionals, who can learn about preventive measures and their different impacts at individual, work, family, governmental and other levels.

The main objective of this event is to share knowledge and the results achieved during the project:

  • STEP_UP educational game
  • Handbook of social and political interventions
  • Toolkit for professionals and training methodology.

The project will be presented during the morning session by the representative of the Portuguese partner SHINE 2Europe, Carina Dantas, with a presentation on the process, methods and results.

In the afternoon session, led by Francesco Camonita from the Spanish partner Wise Angle and SHINE 2Europe, an active methodology will be used to allow participants to experience, through hands-on learning, how the online game works and to access the content first-hand, learn and try out the practical exercises. We intend that a wide community can benefit from this action. Therefore, the event will be inserted in a Conference with an extended programme, dedicated to social innovation, learning and implementation and will count with hundreds of national and international participants interested in these themes, so we invite you to participate in all the other sessions that you consider relevant.
