The EU project Green Education in Media (GEM) aims to reconnect media curricula to today’s environmental reality encompassing nature and its phenomena as well as man-made environment.
The curricula of study programmes related to digital media design and production currently focus on the creation of digital and virtual worlds. They occur in different forms, such as storyworlds in filmmaking, serial writing and games, virtual explorable worlds in XR and digital communities in social media design. How can these digital skills and competencies be utilised to reflect on the impact of digital technology on our natural environment? The project is supported by the Erasmus+ programme (2022 – 2026).
