This to achieve a common understanding of these alternatives, innovative, artistic and non traditional languages and narratives within the consortium; WP2 will realize intensive workshops that will bring together a diverse group of ten professionals -multimedia producers, graphic designers, writers, sound designers, educators, comedians- from all partners’ countries. By applying design-driven methodologies, these groups of storytellers will use their languages, formats and approaches to analyse key-ideas of FEDORA and produce a series of agile raw prototypes of educational resources encompassing diverse formats and languages. They will beused at schools as "canvas" and raw materials to further develop them with students. This action is expected to create effective cooperation between formal and informal educational contexts and will produce the report “FR2 - Framework for aligning science education with society: the search for new languages and narratives to enhance imagination and the capacity to talk about the contemporary challenges.
