Project plan of activities ecological literacy

  1. 1. Ecological Literacy - Project Plan of Activities A1. Informing target group and community about the project in opening/annual conferences (September 2016, June 2017, June 2018) M1. The first transnational meeting in Romania, in the project coordinator school (November, 2016) Short Description The first transnational meeting within our Erasmus+ project entitled “Ecological Literacy” will be in Romania, the project coordinator country. On Monday, the project coordinator and two members of the Romanian team will wait for the participants from Turkey, Latvia, Croatia, Portugal, Lithuania and Cyprus at “Henri Coandă” International Airport from Bucharest Capital City and they will lead the guest teachers (by a coach rented in advance for them) to Sibiu City (at a distance of about 275 km), where, the headmaster and the other members of the Romanian team, teachers, pupils and their parents will welcome the European delegation. The participant teachers will be leaded to the already reserved rooms in hotels and, after a deserved accommodation, they will socialize with the host teachers during their first dinner in the host country. On Tuesday, after breakfast, we will meet together at “Constantin Noica” High School, where the host school staff and the pupils involved in this Erasmus+ project will welcome the European guests with the Romanian traditional “bread and salt”, as a sign of hospitality and appreciation of all partners. We will make together a high school tour and then we will attend a workshop on environmental issues. During the afternoon, the guest and host teachers will have work sessions, by talking about the project activities, sharing informative materials and documents on their local conferences, seminars or workshops. Then, the host school will organize the international contest for this Erasmus+ project logo, after those local drawing contests already organized before by each partner school team, in which the best three proposals of each European partner school were selected for the establishing the winner during the first transnational meeting. This logo will be from now on all our project documents and outputs. We will talk about all our steps in the development of this project and the responsibilities of each partner school in the preparation of meetings, budget, final products, dissemination, promotion of the project, etc. On Wednesday, we will develop, according to a schedule established by the host school team and leadership that will include a documentary visit to a water treatment plant (APĂ CANAL SA), where we will be waited and will get explanations about how they work in this institution, and a study visit to the artificial dam of “Gura Râului” (“The River’s Mouth”), at 3 km from Sibiu City, a dam which feeds with water the host city and the five villages from its neighborhood and which is aimed to mitigate floods and generate electricity. During this study visit we will enjoy of a natural setting and will have a picnic in the Romanian style. On Thursday, the host high school will offer in the morning to the guest teachers from Turkey, Cyprus, Latvia, Croatia, Portugal and Lithuania an educational program by participating in some useful demonstrative lessons of English Language, Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry, etc. In the afternoon the whole project team will make a wonderful tour of Sibiu City, such a full of history settlement. The guests will really understand the reasons for which it was selected to be the Capital of the European Culture in 2007. On Friday, the steps of guests and hosts will be headed to the paths of the forest belonging to the Forestry Directorate Sibiu, giving the opportunity to enrich knowledge about the forest as a natural habitat and to know how to protect it for the future generations. Then, we will visit the “ASTRA” Museum of the Traditional Folk Civilization and “The Grove Forest”, a unique place in Europe by preserving natural exhibits. The Romanian team will offer to their guests some souvenirs and change impressions before the participants’ leaving, a moment which will be full of emotion. This Erasmus+ project coordinator and two members of the host Romanian team will accompany them, by coach, to the “Henri Coandă” International Airport from Bucharest Capital City, where they will have farewell hugs.

Selecting the members of each partner school team and other participant pupils and teachers (September 2016) M2. The second transnational meeting in Portugal, in the project partner school (June, 2017) Short Description The second transnational meeting in Portugal is planned to occur at the end of the first year of this partnership. Staff from the seven partner schools will focus on the intermediate evaluation of the different activities done, management, implementation and impact of the project so far. Besides, in this meeting all teachers will have the opportunity to visit the host school, nor only the main building but also other facilities belonging to the host partner school in order to be acquainted with the different actions developed in concerning: ecological actions developed in school, vertical articulation of the curriculum, early school leaving in specific groups of pupils and the different educational offers concerning them and specific projects designed to improve pupils achievements in Math and mother tongue or involving autistic children. This will be done during workshops getting together Erasmus+ project staff, school teachers involved in these projects and school and city authorities. As the host institution is a school cluster, the project coordinating team intends to make guests to visit also the different buildings concerning the different levels of education, which are developed in different buildings and not only in the city. Rio Maior City is located in a national park and it is known as “the city of sports” (because of the great facilities concerning sports where population and teams or athletes from all around the world come to prepare themselves to championships); population and pupils are used to be aware of the importance of nature and its natural resources and not only taking profit from them; so, besides the city most important spots, all visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the natural salt-marshes and a cooperative association which have been developing different projects and actions in order to have people recognizing the importance of sustainability referring to natural resources. Concerning visits outside school or in the city area, and focusing on the main topic for this project, the host team intends to take all visitors in a visit to: 1) SUMA (a cluster which works with real distinctive expertise, both nationally and internationally, in the integrated management of waste, enabled to reinforce and concert efforts in its intervention and offer multiple solutions for the waste life cycle, this visit being thus very important because this company works closely with city authorities and schools implementing different actions together with teachers to improve citizenship to build a better environment since early childhood, the company visited by staff being able to become a good example of waste treatment social responsibility in education because they develop a lot of different educational instruments as paper, games, online, in order to be used by the involved teachers in the project in relation to the ecological education; 2)TEJO ENERGIA PEGOP (a thermoelectric company which generates energy from coal that will be connected with the visit to Lisbon, on the last day for the meeting, to the Electricity Museum, to compare how this kind of technology has changed and can be used nowadays. This second transnational meeting is that in which the 7 partner schools prepare together the project Progress Report. The host school will give to all guest teachers their certificates of participation to this fruitful transnational meeting. C2.

  3. 3. (every month) M3. The third transnational meeting in Turkey, in the project partner school (May, 2018) Short Description The last transnational meeting within our Erasmus+ project “Ecological Literacy” will be held in Gaziantep, Turkey, where the Turkish partner school is located, that which first had the idea of this Erasmus+ project. So, first of all, in the morning, all guests from Romania, Cyprus, Latvia, Portugal, Lithuania and Croatia have arrived, there will be a welcoming and information meeting about the duration and the things to do in the transnational meeting at the hotel or school’s meeting room. As the project mainly focuses on the term of renewable energy and 3R (Reuse, Reduce and Recycle), the first step will be the Green House. All participant coordinators in this transnational meeting are going to learn about the structure and function of the Green House. It is, in fact, just a small house consisting of a control room, a conference room, as well as the entrance. Then, the host school is going the make a presentation about the theme in the target language. In order to highlight the concept of the renewable energy, the visual art teacher in the Turkish partner school is going to prepare an exhibition consisting of stuff created with used materials such as plastic cups, plates, and even papers. The Turkish school coordinating team will offer to each participant the schedule of the transnational meeting, with days and hours for each project activity. In Gaziantep City, the Metropolitan Municipality holds as an icon for culture. There is a Planetarium, many museums (Zeugma, the world’s biggest mosaic museum, a war museum, a toy museum, and a kitchen museum) and the second biggest zoo in the country. Each day, the host school teachers are planning together the school leadership to have trips to these cultural places. The Turkish area in which is located the host partner school has Birecik Dam which is 63 km away from the city. A boat trip in the dam lake will be organized. There is a Touristic Bazaar in which one can find handcrafts or copper, nacre and carpets and nice rugs. The host school team will invite all participant teachers to this last transnational meeting to see this unique place and to take souvenirs for their Erasmus+ project corners, the places where they will set the flags received from the host school during the welcome activity. Apart from museums, Gaziantep is famous for its cuisine. It has been chosen the city of gastronomy by UNESCO. The participants of the other six partner schools will have the chance to taste delicious kebabs, baklava and many other famous Turkish dishes. Related to our project topic, there will be a trip to a water treatment institution in the host city. Right from the very first day the guest teachers arrive at the airport, a minibus rented by the Turkish school will provide the transportation for the 12 guest teachers (2 teachers from each guest partner school, as we all have already established) and the welcoming teachers in the host project team. Accommodation is variable. As culture and health tourism are very common in Gaziantep, there are many hotels in this city. The members of the Turkish coordinating team are going to choose one that best fits our needs and project budget. The hotel concept will be room and breakfast. So lunch and dinner will be had all together within the group. The Turkish coordinator, who is the person of contact, is willing to guarantee that he is going to perform the tasks assigned to him throughout this Erasmus+ project, also anything more to assist the coordinator of the whole Erasmus+ project or any partner apart from assigned duties. Being the last project transnational meeting, we will analyze our entire activity in the project, taking into account the selected priorities according to the objectives of our project, we will talk about the impact of our Erasmus+ project on all participant pupils and teachers, on our local and regional participating organizations, communities, target groups and other relevant stakeholders, we will prepare together the Final Report.
