Unique research project becomes film festival
Schoolchildren from Björkö school and members of the Björkö local history association have collaborated in an MIL project within GPS400.
Torslanda-Öckerö newspaper writes about the GPS400 project Sustainable home-town through increased MIL and its field studies together with schoolchildren from Björkö school and members of the Björkö home-town association.
During the autumn, members of the project Sustainable home-town through increased MIL visited two schools in the Västra Götaland region to collaborate with students and local heritage associations. The project explores how local natural and cultural heritage can be preserved, used and visualised in the long term between different generations.
Participants included Year 4 pupils at Björkö school and members of the local community association. Together with GPS400, they created four short films about sustainability in the local community from historical, present and future perspectives. These films were shown during a film festival organised by the school.

The VIMIK group, part of GPS400, is an interdisciplinary expert resource for audiovisual research and pedagogy at the University of Gothenburg. The group focuses on increasing visual media and information literacy (MIL) through collaboration with regional actors and by offering educational and research activities. Their work aims to strengthen the ability to read, interpret and work with images and visual media, which is crucial in today's information-rich society.
