UNICEF OFFICE OF INNOVATION
GREEN-Pal employs a game-based learning approach through UNICEF’s innovation FunDoo, a digital virtual coach for adolescents and youth. GREEN-Pal and FunDoo aim to develop youth climate action skills focusing on advocacy as a key instrument to build a better, stronger future for children and young people. GREEN-Pal and FunDoo provides bite-sized learning journeys that focus on i) ecological literacy; ii) systems thinking and iii) action competence. The learning journeys will follow the CoDesingS ESD Framework embedding tasks focused on the specific learning objectives for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Head: targeting activities focusing on cognitive engagement; Heart: introducing activities targeting socio-emotional engagement, and Hand: introducing action-oriented activities targeting behaviour (UNESCO, 2017; CoDesignS ESD, 2021; Sipos et al., 2008; Cotton & Winter, 2010).
ALDESD, UNICEF Office of Innovation and The America University of Sharjah (AUS) are collaborating in the development of the GREEN-Pal Chatbot within the FunDoo ecosystem. GREEN-Pal will be launched during the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in November 2023 at Expo City Dubai. By launching Green-Pal in the UAE, we can harness this unique moment to unite the world in working towards a sustainable future.
