The title of our project is "See the Sea." We all have experiences of the sea but for each one of us it is unique. We co-operate and develop in a creative and innovative way, looking for similarities and differences to discover that the sea is a common treasure.
Knowing that from 2005 until 2014 the focus for the United Nations is Education for Sustainable Development, we are willing to integrate its principles and ideas into our day-by-day school education. Concentrating on marine issues, we try to take advantage of the fact that each partner country has access to a different sea. It allows us to explore and compare environmental problems that our seas face throughout Europe. The students are able to do their own research, learn about the environmental history of the coastal areas, draw conclusions and plan actions that will lead our communities towards a sustainable future.
The children are encouraged to develop an appreciation of the many ways the sea can be used in an environmentally friendly manner for sport and leisure activities and the production of food. This in turn will benefit our children by preparing them to lead healthy lifestyles in the future.
In June all partner schools organised sports events during which various competitions connected with water took place. Watch what the kids did in different schools.
The Spanish schools invites everyone to watch these poscards prepared by their school:
The Spanish students have prepared a calendar of our celebrations, holidays and important events. It is illustrated with our art works from the Ravenna exhibition.
We are happy to inform all partner schools' communities that the Scottish school, Dalmarnock Primary, has been awarded the Green Flag for their eco activities. Congratulations to our coordinators on being so active and eager to make our planet a better and more beautiful place to live!
