An online education space for children: learn how to be safe during the pandemic at the “Antim Ivireanul” Vâlcea County Library
The times that we are living are quite unexpected, with rapid changes that none of us could have ever imagined. Nonetheless, this is the time when we must adapt to the circumstances and learn how to make them work in our favor, rather than against us. But is especially hard to do this when you have barely started to discover the world and how it works.
The “Antim Ivireanul” Vâlcea County Library developed an online educational space where young children could learn safe measures that prevent the spread of COVID-19, in an age-appropriate way.
PLACH’s partner from Vâlcea, Romania, focused on raising awareness about health education in young children and started to transform the library in a place of learning how to be safe in the world we live in nowadays. Since going back to school will never be the same, the “Antim Ivireanul” Vâlcea County Library started to plan 10 workshops, that will carry the message “Taking care of yourself you will take care of everyone else”, that allow children to learn in a ludic manner how to care of their own and how to play an active role in the well-being of the community.
Public Libraries As Active Citizens Hubs focuses on the development of the active citizenship skills in 6 communities from 3 countries, by setting out a network of public libraries and NGOs that will support the creation of public spaces for active citizenship learning and practice. In the process, stakeholders from Romania, Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine, countries with relatively limited democratic experiences, will learn how to set up partnerships, collaborate, and share good practices for cultivating the civic spirit in their communities.
