The first V-Global project field trip took place on the 3rd and 4th of May 2022 in Athens. 25 participants from all over Europe visited the city following 4 itineraries presented here.
The fieldwork allowed participants to collect geolocalized data (photos, sounds, videos, feelings) with the geolocalization applications: SW Maps and GeoTag. The participants engaged in a collaborative work with Miro. They shared their experiences, recorded their ideas, and selected the most relevant data. The discussions helped build the narrative of the virtual field trips that are now being developed.

Exploring sustainable development in Hamburg virtually – through the lens of virtual field trips
The team of Universität Hamburg works in the Faculty of Education in the Department of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Natural Sciences education.
How will we contribute to V-Global?
Our main expertise lies in developing real and virtual field trips with a particular perspective on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as this is also a cross-cutting theme in teacher training at the Universität Hamburg.
To achieve our goal to further promote ESD for future teachers, we have already created a list of tools that are suitable to create virtual field trips.
An interesting way of working in this context is with 360-degree cameras. We have also digitized the first field trips in Hamburg on different topics, for example mobility, housing and energy with ArcGIS StoryMaps.
These examples of virtual field trips will be made freely available through the VGlobal website and thus further contribute to learning about theoretical concepts in real and virtual environments on ESD.
This combination is a first step to show didactical and methodological implementation of innovative and participative approaches to learning (and teaching) at university level.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the V-Global Project!
The project brings together partners from 5 countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Greece and Spain). The consortium is led by colleagues from the University of Paris working in an interdisciplinary team in terms of training and research. The partnership includes 4 universities, a European non-profit organisation and an interdisciplinary planning and design workers collaborative organisation.
The focus of the project is on developing a better understanding of the impact of virtual fieldwork for empowering participative university level studies.
