The focus of our project activities is on ‘future and work’, now. The German group started their business investigation. The students visited hessnatur in Butzbach, a clothing-company that sustainably produces fashion garments in the interests of people, animals and the environment. During the visit the students learned how a garment is made and that a combination of ecological, economic and social factors really works.
The German students received their europass mobility documents from headmistress Brigitte Jung-Hengst. This document is a personal document, which is used to record an organised period of time (a mobility experience) that a person spends in another European country for the purpose of learning or training. It contains information regarding the mobility experience during the international project meeting in Belgium, the training and skills acquired abroad etc.
The first project meeting took place in Belgium. In the months before pupils had been working on the topic of EU. They did a survey in which they presented the information about how people in their country feel about the EU and investigated origins of their colleagues . They shared the results of their surveys during the meeting and had the opportunity to compare the outcomes.
During the project meeting the pupils looked at problems the EU encounters and how they could solve them in the future. The discussed and prepared posters on how to help in building a better future for the EU. Students participated also in various sporting activities, sightseeing trips, culture night during which they could get to know other countries better. They also visited the European Parliament and had the opportunity to talk to Kathleen van Brempt, member of the European Parliament.
Students form Finland, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Poland worked on creating a film entitled “EU good for u!?” They worked in international groups preparing videos presenting different aspects why EU is good for them.
All involved pupils had the possibility to create a logo for the project. All logos were first of all selected in a local logo competition. Each country sended in 2 logo’s for the international logo competition. In the end 1 of the Finnish logos was selected as the official logo for the project. This is the logo.
Below you can find the other logo’s that made it to the final:
