About project

Games of Clothes (RecyCOOL EduGames) aims to develop a set of edu games used in non-formal education activities of participating organisations within RecyCOOL Academy, with a focus on the fashion industry and its impact on our world. The intention is to raise awareness among 2 target groups – educators and young people –and disseminate outcomes via RecyCOOL workshops and other activities. The set of games will empower educators when educating in these topics, they can adapt games to the target group they work with. It will contribute to developing the competences of young people – knowledge, skills or attitudes.
