Berliner Bildungsanalyse - wie viel Empowerment steckt in Schule?
Date du début: 1 août 2015, Date de fin: 30 juin 2016 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The participants of the project „Berliner Bildungsanalyse – wie viel Empowerment steckt in Schule?“ („Berlin Educational Analysis – How much Empowerment allow schools?),by the non-profit-making organisation “mehr als lernen”, are pupils from all over Berlin. Many of them are already members of their respective school councils and try to influence decisions regarding their schools and to shape everyday life in school. However, in most cases there is a lack of networks with other school councils working on the same topics and facing the same challenges. Furthermore, pupils lack contact to political and administrative decision-makers. Therefore, they are unable to draw attention to their agenda from people outside their respective constituencies. The “Berliner Bildungsanalyse” attempts to solve that problem by building networks between pupils and decision-makers. Focusing on the topic empowerment of the EU Youth Strategy, the two groups meet on the same level to discuss within a structured dialogue. Thus, they form strategies to facilitate and promote youth participation in Berlin. The participants of the programme shall be encouraged to actively participate in shaping their surroundings and to take responsibility for their own lives. 350 youths between the age of 13 and 20 will participate in the project. Some of them are involved in the process on more than one level. For instance, 20 pupils will be active as trainers, bearing great responsibility. The participants are from all over Berlin with various experiences and backgrounds. The participation of people with special needs and a mixture of genders are being promoted and explicitly desired. Furthermore, at least 25 decision-makers will participate in the project. These are active in politics and administration in Berlin, Germany and the European Union. Empowerment is understood as helping people help themselves. During the project, pupils will get to know their personal effectiveness and be enabled to take their future into their own hands. The “Berliner Bildungsanalyse” consists of different conferences. First, there will be a qualifying conference with the 20 trainers from 20 different school councils. It will last for three days. Then, during the mid-conference the trainers will develop a questionnaire that examines the criteria for empowerment in schools. This is not to be understood as a critique of the existing school system, but it is meant to unearth hidden potential in modern schools. Furthermore, the trainers will invite the decision-makers to the project. Following that, there will be a consulting conference including 5 school councils from Berlin. There, pupils will analyse their school and record the results using the empowerment questionnaire. Further, they will develop projects designed to promote their self-responsibility and platforms for participation in schools. During every consulting conference there will be at least one decision-maker present providing opportunity for a dialogue. In order to give other school councils the chance to participate in the project the empowerment questionnaire will be sent to all school councils in Berlin by the Landesschülerausschuss Berlin (LSA). During the mid-conference the trainers will gather the results of the empowerment questionnaires and prepare the exchange-conference. The exchange-conference’s main goal is to build networks. There, the results of the empowerment questionnaires will be presented; they will provide a basis for a dialogue between 146 pupils and the decision-makers. Together they develop strategies and projects to promote youth participation also on a political level in Berlin. During the final conference, the trainers will gather all results and will send them as a feedback to the Senate of Berlin and all decision-makers involved. Further, the results will be made available to “Jugend für Europa” (Youth for Europe). If possible, they will also be integrated into the EU Youth Strategy. All results will be made available to the public at the internet presence of “mehr als lernen”. Apart from the feedback to the Senate and the analysis of the questionnaires there will be a film documentary. The participants are actively involved during every step of the process. They will take part in effective democratic participation. Applied methods of non-formal and informal education will improve their competences for their future life. They will obtain important skills in project-management, learn how to communicate with political decision-makers and take over responsibility for their own matters.
