Games for Energy Efficiency Youth Literacy


GENTLY brings together experts from 6 other European countries (Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Romania and Spain) to offer added value, reclaim international cooperation, and deploy digital tools for informing and educating the youth in a non-formal playful and joyful way on energy efficiency and green deal practices.

The project's main scope is to create an innovative package of games, both board and online, of two levels (easy and professional), and to provide game-based learning to as many as possible young people, youth workers and young people with fewer opportunities. GENTLY's objectives are:

  • To conduct research analysis investigating climate change facts and green deal actions, scoping to energy efficiency maximization and green deal
  • To design, test, and publish an innovative training game package on energy efficiency issues for youth workers, young people and youths with fewer opportunities
  • To deliver training courses related to energy efficiency issues for youth workers
  • To involve companies in professional games by indicating actions for environmental protection

Project Partners

The project partners consist of organisations with complementary backgrounds, experiences and skills. Professionals with relevant knowledge and expertise are collaborating for a common target to facilitate efficient and genuine education of young individuals.
