Fun GEek Week
The national Fun GEeks competition will be organised during Global Education Week. Global Education Week represents the collective effort of all 21 member states of the Global Education Network and all actors within it to focus efforts and organise various activities during one week. The goal? To raise awareness about Global Educationv. Global Education highlights the important impact education has on our ability to function in the modern, globalised world and it makes the connection between local and global events visible.
The Fun Park app makes it possible for us to organise a national competition even during a global pandemic as it represents a digital education tool which enables young people from all over Serbia to participate in Global Education Week activities.
When you download the app, the quiz about Global Education will become available come Monday November 16th. Your goal will be to play the quiz, answer all the questions and to answer as many of them correctly as you can. However, you also need to be fast – your final result depends on both factors. You can play the quiz only once. Top three players will win the Fun GEek title as well as certain valuable rewards.
Our aim is for all of us to come together during Global Education Week so we can have fun and learn something about Global Education and Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, and so that we could also recognize each other’s successes. Learning can, and should, be fun!
Quiz about Global Education
This year, the global COVID-19 pandemic showed us how a virus can have an impact on the whole world and affect all of our lives – it’s up to us to show how solutions to the world’s problem can also come from the local level. This represents the core of Global Education and last week, we heard of good practice examples which, though they represent local initiatives from places such as Kuršumlija and Rudno, they can however inspire further action and thus contribute to societal change.
We heard those examples from 18 representatives of civil society organisations, institutions and schools that participated in the Fun GEeks training and who are now part of the National Global Education Network of Serbia. It was also they who created the quiz about Global Education which will be played during the competition!
As they researched the topic and created content for the quiz with the support of a mentor, the Fun GEeks training participants, as quiz creators, became peer educators. By creating content whose purpose was to explain to young people the concepts of Global Education, Sustainable Development Goals as well as the Global Education Week, they placed themselves in the shoes of their peers to find what was most important. They also wanted to present it in the simplest way possible. The result is a concise and clear quiz that anyone can play, without any previous knowledge about Global Education.
We’re extremely proud of the young people who created this quiz, and we hope you like it. Download the Fun Park app from the Google Play or Apple App store, register your account (pay close attention that you input the correct email address, as we will contact you via email in case you win an award), and play the quiz about Global Education in Serbian from the 16th to the 20th of November. Win valuable rewards as well as the Fun GEeks title – Good luck!
