International Virtual Congress CLMNTK18

The IES Virxe do Mar – Climántica Project, in consortium with Fábrica de Ciencia Viva and the University of Aveiro, with the SEPA-Interea research group of the University of Santiago de Compostela and the Genomics Medicine Group of the University of Santiago de Compostela, convened the process to select the students who will participate in the CLMNTK18 International Camp and their accompanying teachers, who would take part in the 48-hour accredited Teaching Seminar by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports (MECD). This initiative is under the framework of the sustainability period of the EduCO2cean-Erasmus+ Program.

With this selective process, the students who will participate in the Camp which will be held at the Fábrica de Ciencia Viva of Aveiro (Portugal) will be selected. The centers participating in this campus will have priority to send representatives to the biodiversity Camp for Latin America and Europe that is scheduled to take place in Costa Rica in the Holy Week of 2019.

This campus will adapt to the coastal environment the model which was developed last year in the framework of the strategic alliance for innovation EduCO2cean-Erasmus +, approved and financed by the EU from September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2018, thus giving sustainability to that initiative. Like that one, it will also seek to generate two types of products made through collaborative work:

– Short films which integrate images in order to express the acquired knowledge in the campus, comparing and increasing them through the use of augmented reality, with the ones that the students will bring from their places of origin. Robotics, laser light, holography and augmented reality will be used to present scenarios that communicate a more sustainable future with responses to climate change.

-An awareness-raising musical about climate change and global change in the ocean, which integrates theatre, music, dance, singing and visual arts projected by holography and laser light in the projection of the scenography. This proposal aims to evolve the proposals created at the 2018 campus.

The participants are selected for the quality of their products of awareness-raising on climate change, global change of the oceans and other global environmental challenges published in the platform of the international virtual congress CLMNTK18 according to the bases published in the sections Call and Criteria of selection for campus. The url that gives access to the virtual congress is the following one:

The CLMNTK18 International Virtual Congres counted with the participation of more than 450 students who presented more than 200 projects. These projects were evaluated by the jury, which was formed by Anna Pons, CEO of the Environmental Education Center of the Valencian Community, José Manuel Gutierrez, technician of Environmental Education of the CEIDA of the Government of Euskadi and coordinator of the state network of Environmental Education EsEnRed, Carmen Villavicenico, director of the program Science in your School of the Mexican Academy of Sciences and Mar Fuentas head of the Department of Orienting of the IES Terra de Xallas, failed the prizes of the virtual youth congress of 2018. The results were reflected in the portal of the international virtual youth congress, from which the selectable contributions were made:

The first classified product in the Congress was created by two students of the IES Xelmirez I of Santiago de Compostela. This winning product was developed by the Lucía Iglesias Noya and Clara Paz Ollero, students of the IES Xelmírez I from Santiago de Compostela. The students were interviewed for the award by the newspaper La Voz de Galicia.

For the evaluation of the products, two types of scores were taken into account: the ratings of the members of the jury and the number of likes in Facebook.

The second and third place were for two products from Mexico. One of them, called Prisa, was the most valued work of plastic arts from those submitted to the Congress.

The other two countries that achieved representation in those two campuses were Poland and Portugal. The autonomous communities of Galicia, Madrid, Catalonia, Castilla y León, Canarias, Cantabria and Murcia were the representants from Spain.
