Webinar: Newscraft, a serious game

Within the framework of the PRACTICIES project, the company Vertical has worked with the University of Lille, through the GERiiCO research laboratory, to create a serious game on media and information literacy. It seeks to help young people acquire critical thinking skills in order to better sift through all the discourses and images they regularly access through different media at a time when the danger of “fake news”, so-called “conspiracist” narratives and radical propaganda fuels intense public debate.

Webinar: Digital Me

The Digital Me Teacher Toolkit provides secondary school teachers and trainers with a course for young people aged between 14 and 18 that seeks to promote active citizenship. During the course, students create a digital story: a short video (1-3 minutes) expressing their opinion on a topic through images and a voice-over. The stories are shared within a Story Circle, where students must ask and answer questions about their work and offer feedback to others in the group. They thus are encouraged to think critically about the information they encounter whilst learning to participate actively in a group. In general, the stories they produce address an injustice or raise awareness of an issue. In this manner, students feel empowered in their ability to solve problems in society from within.

Fortbildung Sicherheit im Bahnhofsviertel

Angesichts der Vielfalt der Nutzungsinteressen von Anwohnenden, Gewerbetreibenden, Pendelnden, Reisenden und Randgruppen (z.B. Wohnungslosen und Suchtkranken) kennzeichnen Nutzungskonflikte und Gefährdungspotenziale die Bahnhofsviertel der Städte. Ihr schlechter Ruf war in den vergangenen Jahren vielerorts Ausgangspunkt kommunaler Bemühungen, das zentrumsnahe Umfeld der Bahnhöfe durch Konsum und Wohnfunktionen nachhaltig aufzuwerten.

Die Gewährleistung von Sicherheit ist dabei von zentraler Bedeutung. Um einen Beitrag zu ganzheitlichen Sicherheitskonzepten für Bahnhofsviertel zu leisten, wurden aktuelle kriminalpräventive und städtebauliche Maßnahmen in den Städten Düsseldorf, Leipzig und München analysiert und praxisbezogene Hinweise für das Sicherheitshandeln erarbeitet. 

Ziel der Fortbildung ist es, die im Rahmen des Projekts SiBa entwickelten Präventions- und Handlungskonzepte für mehr Sicherheit und Aufenthaltsqualität in Bahnhofsvierteln kennenzulernen. Im Rahmen der Fortbildung entwickeln die Teilnehmer*innen praxisnah Handlungsideen für die Bahnhofsviertel in ihren Kommunen.

Die 1,5 tägige Fortbildung richtet sich sowohl an die Leitungs- wie auch an die Mitarbeiterebene in den Kommunen, die für die Erarbeitung und Umsetzung von Präventionsstrategien zuständig sind. Es können bis zu 25 Personen teilnehmen.  Zugleich bietet die Fortbildung eine Plattform für den Austausch der Mitarbeiter über die jeweilige Situation in ihren Kommunen.
