The interactive CHELLIS platform will make it possible to put online 6 CHELLIS stories (one per project partner) that will be produced by each country inspired by the ecological transition, offered for adult learners who wish to improve their language skills.

Each of the six partners will choose their winning artist(s) as visual creator. Each story will thus be presented in a storybook style where the scenes, characters and key plot objects are represented visually. The number of illustrations is estimated at 10-15 per story.

Each story will provide users with choices at key plot moments that will determine that story's outcome. Each of the 6 stories will have 3 different possible endings which will be developed using scenarios. This means that each story will have endings that influence the environment and the characters in the story in a positive, neutral, or negative way.


The artist(s) chosen will receive access to the story they are going to illustrate and will also receive further detailed information and instructions about the CHELLIS partnership’s expectations and the desired work flow.
