On 10 March 2021, the members of the NEMO Working Group LEM – the Learning Museum are invited to join the webinar ‘When nutrition meets SDGs with EUROPEANA’. It is exclusive to the working group members and it partly serves as an introduction to the Europeana MOOC 'Digital Education with Cultural heritage'.

In the webinar Patricia Barciela, director of Domus (Museos Científicos Coruñeses) proposes Europeana as the digital platform with which to develop Learning Scenarios that link the European digital heritage with topics of our interest. As an example, she will show us how, from an exhibition on Nutrition and Sustainable Development Goals in the museum where she works, an educational activity can be developed with the support of the material available in Europeana.

Patricia Barciela Durán will facilitate the webinar for the NEMO Working Group LEM. She is an Europeana museum ambassador. She holds a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Santiago de Compostela. At the same time as she was developing the research of her doctoral thesis, she started her professional life as a teacher.

As a professional in scientific museology, she has taken part in the renovation and management of more than half of the Domus' permanent exhibition area. She has also participated in the design, management and production of numerous temporary exhibitions and published more than a hundred articles. She has also designed and organized dozens of conferences, courses, events and educational workshops. As a researcher, she has published articles in international journals and participated in scientific congresses. She is specialized in themes related to non-formal scientific education and in the coordination of scientific communication projects.
