Dear friends, summertime is here and we are taking a well deserved time off after a very hard academic year. The international health crisis has taken a toll on our project, and we’ve had to cancel our last mobility in Málaga, which was planned for April 2020. Hopefully, we’ll be able to make it in March 2021, as we’ve been granted an extension of time for our project.
However, we’ve managed to keep working online together, to keep in touch and share our concerns with our international partners on our Twinspace. For example, we’ve shared presentations on how online learning was carried out in each country. In addition, we’ve discussed how the pandemic was affecting our lives and done research on how the crisis was affecting social enterprises and NGOs, one of the main topics of our project.
What’s more, we’ve managed to have an online meeting to evaluate the hard work we’ve done over the past two years and share our feelings and impressions on participating in an Erasmus programme. It was great to meet our friends in these difficult times. You can watch it here. Part 1 and part 2.
Finally, here are some videos put together by Kati Hevesi, our Hungarian coordinator, summarising all the work developed during the project, both in-school activities and international mobilities.
Hereby we inform you of the cancellation of the C4 LTT activity “A Social Enterpreneurial Fair”, which was scheduled to be held in Malaga, Spain, at IES Pablo Picasso from 20st to 25th of April 2020, in the framework of the Erasmus+ project Young Entrepreneurial Citizens of Modern Europe, KA229, strategic partnership, with ref. number 2018-1-ES01-KA229-050613_1.
reason for our cancellation is the exceptional state of affairs in
our country, which is currently under “state of alarm”, in a
period of lockdown and confinement at home due to the COVID-19
schools won’t be opened at the time of our mobility, so we believe
that cancellation of our mobility is fully justified by the
occurrence of “force majeure”, which results from
conditions not attributable to the project beneficiaries.
The decision on a possible
postponement of the meeting in Spain will be considered by the
partner schools only after the end of the situation of threat to
human health and life.
We’ve prepared some dissemination materials about our recent Learning and Teaching Transnational activity in Budapest :”The Visually Impaired and Me” to distribute among our school communities in the partner countries.
Here’s a brochure on our last mobility to Hungary:
And videos: One prepared by Spain and one by Poland.
And here you can download a leaflet prepared by our Hungarian partners summarising all the international mobilities until now.
After spending 5 wonderful days in one of the most beautiful cities in the entire world, it’s time to look back at how much we did over there.
Kati and Erika, coordinators in the host school prepared a programme full of activities ranging from chats to meetings and from workshops to hands-on experiences.
On our first day in Budapest, we were welcomed at one of the municipal buildings where weddings are held. We learned a lot about the neighbourhood and how it’s been transformed over the years. Poems about the participating cities were read, and one of our favourite activities took place: dark rooms. We had to learn how to survive as visually impaired or blind citizens.
Blindness was, in fact, one of the many difficulties we had to deal with. Moving on a wheelchair, deafness and other handicaps were also experienced.
Proper entrepreneurial skills were also worked. We created a comic strip for an online magazine and made a guide about helping the blind.
There was also time for some pure fun activities such as folk dancing a city tour and the farewell dinner.
Here’s an album with pictures if you want to find out more!
And here you can find the magazine edited with all materials produced by our students, before, during and after the mobility.
We look forward to meeting all the participants in Málaga very soon.
