Launching our educational innovation project in valència

Starting a new collective project is always exciting. Even more so when it involves eight international partners from different fields of education. Last spring, the partners of the Lo-Fi project started face-to-face the project for the generation of tools for the recovery of traditional knowledge associated with food production and transformation.

The Campanar Institute in Valencia (@iescampanar) and the Piter Jelles Leeuwarder Lyceum (@leeuwarderlyceum) in the Netherlands contribute with their know-how as education partners within Lo-fi project. They will host the pilots of the project on innovative registration and transmission of traditional knowledge associated with the agri-food system that we aim to build.

Four of our partners are social action and socio-territorial research entities. From Perugia (Italy) we have DENSA social cooperative (@cooperativadensa) and the ONGD TAMAT (@tamatngo). From Valencia, rooted in the famous agricultural territories of l’Horta de València and l’Albufera, comes Fundació Assut (@fundacioassut). From Groningen (Netherlands) we have Stitching House of Design, (https://www.houseofdesign.nl/en/a-jumble-of-beautiful-patterns-textures-and-shapes/) an interdisciplinary center specialized in artistic tools.

Last but not least, the Polytechnic University of Valencia (@instaupv) and the University of Perugia (@unipg1308) will provide the technical and research human resources oriented to the production of the necessary materials to provide our toolkit and pedagogical plan with academic quality.

In a nutshell, we face the first year of the project with enthusiasm and prepared to work as a group. We will soon finalize the first objective of the project: to provide European society with a pedagogical plan for the inclusion of traditional knowledge associated with the agri-food system from an intercultural and intergenerational perspective.
