This document is the result of the activities carried out during the Erasmus+ Learning and Training Teaching activity, “Taking Action to Change the World”, which took place online on 24-26 March 2021.
This activity was part of the Erasmus + project “Entrepreneurial Young Citizens of Modern Europe”.
Students from Poland, Hungary, Croatia and Spain got together online to learn about young entrepreneurial people making a difference in their communities and to share their own experiences.
The last workshop in the programme was called: “Take Action to Change the World”, which was meant to encourage young people to be entrepreneurial and take social action in order to create a positive impact in their communities.
The following pages include their action plans about social issues that include the environment, LGBTI community rights, women’s rights, human rights and animal rights.
We are very proud of our committed and resourceful students.
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.
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.
One of the activities of our project has been celebrating Europe Day. The activities we carried out included the following:
In-class workshops with Kahoot and Quizziz to learn about the EU institutions and countries, especially the ones we work with. We focused on Hungary, Poland and Croatia, our Erasmus+ partner countries.
Here are the learning materials we created and used:
Moreover, all participating Erasmus+ students from partner countries have engaged in an online debate on Twinspace about different cultural and social aspects of Europe.
Last but not least, we organized a dissemination activity at I.E.S. Pablo Picasso, Spain, during breaktime on that day. There, students had the chance to learn more about France (particularly Reunion Island) and Italy (particularly Sicily) with Séphora and Federica, the European volunteers at this school. They made posters with interesting facts and figures about their countries and brought some traditional food for us to taste. We also learnt about the etymology of the word “Europe” thanks to a poster realized by students from 4th B with the help of our Latin and Greek teacher.
Here you can see pictures from the event. Thank you for participating.
We’re back from our mobility in Poland. It’s been an intense and rewarding experience.
We’ve had a great time and we really appreciate the warm welcome we’ve received from our amazing hosts, Polish teachers and students.
It’s been a great opportunity to get to know new people, learn more about Polish culture. We’ve also had the chance to share our work on social entrepreneurs and mini-companies and raise our social awareness working with NGOs in Chestochowa.
As a sample, here’s a short video summarizing some of the activities during the mobility. It’s just a glimpse of how much we’ve worked and how much fun we’ve had!
And if you want to see more, check out the album with photos and videos of everything we did.
Thank you everyone involved. It’s been a real pleasure!
