What is the Girls Go Circular project?
The Girls Go Circular Project (https://eit-girlsgocircular.eu) aims to equip 50,000 students (girls and boys) aged 14-18 across Europe with digital and entrepreneurial skills by 2027 through an online learning programme about the circular economy.
Closing the digital gender gap
According to the European Commission’s Women in Digital Scoreboard 2019, women represent only 34% of STEM graduates (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and 17% of ICT specialists. An increase in the number of women entering the digital skills market would generate an additional annual EUR 16 billion for the European economy.
Research shows that increasing diversity in leadership not only generates revenues but also boosts problem-solving as well as team performance indicators. Under the coordination of EIT RawMaterials, the Girls Go Circular project is doing its share in contributing to reducing the digital gender gap by empowering girls aged 14-18 in Southern and Eastern Europe to develop their digital and entrepreneurial competencies while acquiring knowledge on the circular economy.
The online learning platform developed in the framework of the project – the “Circular Learning Space” – offers students the option of choosing between different learning modules on topics like e-waste, climate change, food, or robotics. These modules are based on a learning-by-doing approach, transferring knowledge and skills through an interactive, challenge-based structure
All teachers and their students are eligible to participate in the Girls Go Circular project. Individual students can take part in GGC too, by participating in the Circular Economy Camps of Junior Achievement Greece. For more information and registration, click here
