Second Animation Techniques blended LLTA in Malmo, Sweden

The Erasmus+ project “YangCC: Youth as Agents to Negate Global Climate Change via Visual Means” held its second Learning Teaching Training Activities (LTTA) event in Malmo, Sweden from May 4-10.

The Blended Activity Animation Technique was designed to facilitate the acquisition of a comprehensive set of competencies necessary to train and instruct others (young people) in the utilisation of animation techniques. This approach empowers young people to engage in the fight against environmental problems, such as climate change.

Over the course of the five-day meeting, Prof. Alexander Iliev, professor, actor and anthropologist, as well as Filip Donchev, a filmmaker, actor, and educator, introduced the attendees to an overview of Animation theory, history and hardware, film editing technology, climate change concepts, and practical demonstrations of animation and video creation.  Additionally, they were introduced to fundamental concepts pertaining to climate change and the ways in which human actions contribute to it that helped them to create various animations and videos.

The meeting also gave the participants the opportunity to celebrate Europe Day at @studio21, an event organised by University of Malmo, Eurodesk Sweden, Europe Direkt Lund and Malmo Idella, and attended the Association Gala of Malmö (Föreningsgalan Malmö) and participated in an Intercultural night where they exchanged and learned about traditions from the countries that are partners in the project: Sweden, Greece and Bulgaria.
