Dissemination of the project results at an information event of the SMK on 23.08.2017 in Dresden
The project coordinator Mr Heiko Heinze held together with the Saxon State Ministry of Culture and the Pedagogical Exchange Service of the Standing Conference and the SBI an information event on the EU educational programs Erasmus + and eTwinning on 23 August 2017. The aim of the event for headmasters of all types of schools was to familiarize them with the EU programs, to get them involved in relevant projects and to show them support options for their implementation. More than 70 participants received comprehensive information on European funding opportunities and the conditions for applying in Key Actions 1 and 2 of the EU Education Program. In a market of Erasmus + and eTwinning initiatives, as well as in various workshops, they experienced examples of European school partnerships, which through shared learning activities make intercultural exchange tangible.

On the completion of our European Project, Diana Curto, teacher of Chemistry and Physics at La Miquela High School, wrote an article for the La Pilastra Magazine (see link below) describing the last stage of our tasks: the completion of the path around La Pilastra Island with wooden stakes with QR codes containing information of all the animal and plant species of the river Ter.
On January 19th, Judit Serrats, English teacher and coordinator of European Projects at La Miquela Secondary School, delivered a lecture on the Erasmus+ Project “Protecting the environment is an opportunity!Not a burden, we must bear” for postgraduate students of the CLIL postgraduate course titled “Bilingual Teaching Methodologies for the Language School Project”, placing a special emphasis on the importance of the use of English, as a working language for learning and disseminating the contents of such a project.
From the blog you can read a diary of all the mobilities and learn more about international things we have been involved in.
Diary of the student mobilities were also published (in Finnish) in a local newspaper Kylänraitti (1st TTALA Kylänraitti 3/2016 page 14 , the other issues are not available in web)
The project has been presented to all teachers, students from grades 7-9 and also parents in various occasions.
Inkeri Mauno is telling the teachers about the last TPM and the whole project.
During an open-door evening for the parents in October 22nd 2017 we presented all the projects and activites in our school, among others all our international projects. In the last picture Elina Mattila, who participated in this project, is telling about the student mobilities.
We have a project wall at school with pictures from the TTALAs, map with all the project countries etc.
The Erasmus+ Project “Protecting the environment is an opportunity! Not a burden we must bear” is a multilateral project in which 5 countries take part in its implementation: Finland, Lithuania, Spain, Turkey and Germany, as the main coordinator.
This project targets students of 12 to 15 years old and lasts two years and a half, that is, from September 2015 to January 2018.
As the title suggests and according to the EU education policies, this project is based on the preservation and protection of the natural environment and on the rational use of natural resources.
Throughout the duration of the project, 5 mobilities will be carried out, one in each partner country, where students will analyse different water-related environmental hotspots and will put together a compendium of good practices. The idea is to make students aware of their responsibility for protecting the natural resources and for the dissemination of the results using the ICT. Therefore, another objective is to promote the use of ICT on the documentation and dissemination of the project activities.
A third objective is to encourage the learning of foreign languages. For this reason, the TTALAs (the Teaching and Learning Activities) and workshops as well as the communications via e-mail or Skype will be held in English.
