Water Around Us
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015,
Date de fin: 31 août 2017
The project is based on intercultural and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, experience and knowledge. Studying water in its various aspects will provide opportunities for complex researches including the meaning and importance of water to life, the environmental aspects of the problem, investigating the social and anthropological aspects of water (establishing settlements and the influence of water on their development) and searching for water connotations in arts. All the institutions involved in the project preparation are situated by a significant body of water – rivers, lakes, seas.
The teams expect to show the students the complexity of such an essential thing like Water hoping that continuous examining the aspects, and especially in an international context, would reflect in a more responsible attitudes of the young people as well as the adults to the environment and the cultures.
Furthermore, using English language as a communication means should raise the students´ interest in studying English and possibly other foreign languages. The work on the project and the partner meetings will enable the children to improve their foreign language skills gained at school as well as to acquire new ones in practice while working on the project (either on the outcomes delivery or directly during the partners´ meetings).
The interdisciplinary study and intercultural exchange of ideas on a topic of a global meaning and importance provides opportunities for the implementation of a wide variety of activities – firstly, part of the project work will be concentrated on activities held in order to elaborate project outcomes and results: 1) locally at the individual schools (including some pre-teaching and preparation work, conducting the researches themselves and the work on the products as well as dealing with their final completion and presentation to the other partners by means of ICT or directly on partners meetings), and 2) in transnational cooperation including comparative surveys based on the individual approaches from the local researches, complex issues involving works of all partners gathered at one (such as exhibitions of arts and crafts works of all the partners, studies comprised of the contributions of each of the partners, i.e. the mapping of the biodiversity in the regions represented by the institutions involved in the project, the various approaches in the presentation of a work of Arts with Water connotations etc.).
Another important part is the short-term exchanges of groups of pupils and transnational project meetings which will involve teachers and students where the representatives from each of the institutions will work on common outcomes during workshops and other activities, visit places in relation to the project issues in order to get acquainted with the specifics of the host partner´s country, region and school, exchange ideas about the problems and issues addressed by the project, promote different approaches and share different experience.
The partners expect to release: Multilingual Dictionary – a cross-project outcome; presentations, booklets, guidebooks to deal with the particular project sub-topic, performances, exhibitions.
