Erasmus+ Project

Erasmus+ Project

Last November, the Lycée was awarded a grant to take part in the Erasmus + 2020-2022 project, along with three other European Schools (Marie-Curie-Schule, Berufsbildungszentrum in Völklingen, Germany, which is the leading school for this project; Istituto d’Istruzione Superiore G. Caselli in Siena, Italy and Istanbul Erkek Lisesi in Istanbul, Turkey).

This school exchange partnership will be exploring Sustainable Development Goals from different perspectives with 18 pupils from Germany, Italy, Great Britain and Turkey. The focus is on the sustainable development goals which are the core themes of sustainability itself: health, climate protection, sustainable consumption, sustainable production, global justice, etc. The goal is to learn about how to act in a sustainable manner with regard to the future as well as to reflect on one’s own behaviour. Through a combination of analysis and practical projects the 14 to 20-year old learners are meant to become ambassadors for a more ecological, just and social world. This way, the pupils will be part of the process of change towards a culture of sustainability. As a result of the joint workshops, a public TwinSpace is created which will document activities and results.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation, travel is limited so all activities will take place online until further notice. The first week of workshops were run by the German School late February. At the LFCG, so far, only the 2nde Italianists have been actively involved. But the project is meant at a larger scale, for the whole school to be engaged with SVT/Biology, History/Geography, Political Science and modern language teachers participating with their classes.

The theme for that first week was: "Water consumption and individual and national water footprint".

Over 3 days, 94 students and teachers met virtually.

Day one – The introductory meeting lasted one hour where a representative for each school made a presentation of their school. Elisabetta M., 2nde5 pupil at LFCG, presented a short video clip the Lycée and introduced it in English and Italian.
Then the programme was detailed and students were divided into subgroups to get acquainted.

The topics for the week were:
• Drinking water production
• Water production
• Individual water consumption logbook/diary
• Individual and national water footprint

Day two – Meeting for an hour, students were divided in virtual rooms where they presented and discussed their individual questionnaires, selected the most relevant questions and sent the final questionnaire to the teachers. They also discussed each country’s footprint figures/impact.

Day three – The meeting lasted two hours. To start with, students were divided in virtual rooms to discuss the results of their questionnaires. They had to come up with 3 tips on how each of us can reduce our water footprint and send these to their teachers. Each school also had to create logos (two logos for each school) which were submitted to a vote: first the teachers voted to select one logo per school and the students chose their favourite one from that selection of 4. Logo C won the vote.

Stay tuned: we will update you about the next steps of the project and with the preparation for the symposium about "Ocean protection" that will be organised with the UK Marine Conservation Society for the official launch of the project scheduled in the first week of June, for International Ocean Day.
