Play Your Way to Norway (2019-2021)

Baltic and Nordic countries are part of one region with a shared history. Neighbouring countries’ language skills and cultural awareness are, therefore, indisputably important for citizens in the region, especially for young people in today’s globalised mobile society. This project intends to take advantage of today’s youth’s innate enthusiasm for virtual games, their increasingly apparent shift towards the digital world and self-guided learning and seeks to strengthen intercultural communication between Lithuanian and Norwegian young people through the use of the innovative and attractive gamification method and self-directed learning approach.

Main aims:

  • promote Norwegian language and culture and mutual Nordic-Baltic linguistic and cultural understanding
  • stimulate Nordic-Baltic people's interest in the Norwegian language and culture
  • focus on activities that strengthen Norwegian young people’s computational thinking and improve Norwegian language comprehension in young people in Lithuania and the Nordic-Baltic region


  • create an online educational game promoting Norwegian language and culture
  • pilot the game at associated partner school(s) in Lithuania with 15-18-year-old pupils and collect feedback
  • organise a meeting in Norway between young people from the pilot training and Norwegian youth who created content for the game, to finalise the game
  • promote the game through social media and encourage people from the Nordic-Baltic region to participate
  • organise the final international conference in Lithuania

Main outcomes:

  • an online game promoting Norwegian language and culture
  • better mutual Lithuanian-Norwegian linguistic and cultural understanding, tolerance, and respect between youths of the two cultures
