This time all the participants of the Erasmus+ project were in Barcelona. They had one week to learn more about the nature by performing different projects.
At the first day all the students who participate at the Edasmus- project have met in the school hall and played some games to know each other. After that they heard different presentations from the students from Dronfield, Malaga and French Guriana and made workshops like sustainable glue made of potatoes. For the daily closing they recovered with a round yoga on the roof terrace.
The next day the students were visited by Paula Bruna. She is an eco-artist and made a presentation about her artist work, like she sees the world and the relationship between human and nature. This opened the eyes of many students and they recognized that it’s not difficult to live sustainable.
In the afternoon it was planned to make a stop-motion movie, for this one we needed to go outside and look for some natural materials. The stop-motion movie should be about how we think the world could be after the age of the human ends.
When this part was finished, the german students were allowed to present their projects. They explained what the others had to do to create their own lipbalm and soap.
The third day were without any projects. All the students went to the beach at the Costa Brava and got a snorkeling workshop. They also had two little presentations about the sea weed and the fishes in this part of the sea. (also see the paintings here)
The next day it was planned to visit a sewage treatment plant. The students were guided through it and they were told what needs to happen to clean the water. The smelling was a little bit strange, but everybody survived the tour 🙂
After that they had a guided tour were they were shown the important points of barcelona which are relationated with nature.
At the last day the students from Dronfield made a last presentation about the potato-glue and the german students showed a stop-motion movie with the message to live sustainable. After that all the students drove into the city together and got split up in two groups. The first group visited a “underground water container” and the second group met an Extension Rebellion. He told them about his non-violent actions for the climate change, for example he makes demonstrations on the street and blockades the traffic. As both actions were finished the two groups met again and went to “Casa batllo” together, there we visited the whole house with audio guides. The rest of the day was free like at the other days after the activities. The students had time to spend time with their host family or their friends.
As a conclusion you can say that the Erasmus+ project really teaches you many new things about nature and shows you how you can live to make yourself and the nature something good. It’s really recommendable and all of the students are really happy to be a part of Erasmus+ 2019.
