PROJECT “Awake Mind, Absolve Future” (AMAF)
Environmental problems are not a national problem, but a universal problem that all humanity should act jointly in solving the problem. It is important that an increasingly polarized humanity moves away from this primitive point of view and acquires a structure that puts the interests of humanity that can work together to solve problems ahead of the national interests.
AMAF project has been designed with international participation, which requires collaborative work with 5 partners, and aims to contribute to the solution of the climate crisis and environmental problems, which are a global problem, and to contribute to the needs of all partners.
In order to protect our future in this age when environmental problems have reached serious dimensions, it is necessary to gain social common sense and to carry out effective studies on this path. In the project designed for this purpose, the climate crisis and environmental problems will be studied for the first time through P4C, a philosophical thinking method, and its goals are:
-To increase environmental awareness and awareness of environmental problems with the P4C, philosophical thinking method with children.
-To contribute to the solution of environmental problems and help sustainable environmental and climate goals.
– To be able to raise environmentally literate individuals.
-To reorganize the human-nature relationship and to provide people with ethical values about the environment.
-To introduce the school/institution staff to the field of environmental psychology.
-To be able to develop students’ creative, critical, collaborative, and attentive, logical thinking, and analysing skills using the P4C method.
-To recognise universal problems through international collaborative work.
-To have an intercultural exchange.
-To develop intellectual flexibility skills.
-To acquire universal ethical values.
-To improve foreign language use.
– To produce creative and flexible solutions to environmental problems in this way to develop problem-solving skills.
– To contribute into the students’ democratic life skills development.
-To develop students’ research, risk analysis and evaluation skills on environmental and climate crisis issues.
– To improve digital skills.
The expected results to be achieved in the light of these goals are as follows:
-Increasing the environmental awareness of the school/institution staff.
-Creating an exhibition of endemic plants, augmented-virtual reality videos, 360 videos, and environmentally tangible products.
-Contributing to the environmental problems of our planet in sequence from our immediate surroundings to the remotes.
-Conducting educational work such as a virtual book on environmental issues, an environmental club.
–Systematic environmental education in our school for sustainable environmental awareness.
– Educating environmentally literate individuals with environmental training.
-Implementing small-scale agriculture in the schoolyard and creating an organic fertilizer production area.
P4C makes it easier for children to analyse and resolve complex situations. P4C, which is a supportive teaching method for the preparation of future adults who are under threat of a climate crisis in a mental sense, contributes to solving global problems.
