Skopje – March 2018

By continuing the activities of the Project Erasmus+ each time in a different country, the 1st LTT Activity took place in Skopje, FYROM from 19 March  until 23 March 2018.

We arrived at the “Krste Misirkov” in the firsh day (3/19/2018). After the initial quiding tour we went on to activities intending to break the ice among the students. The purpose was to know better one another, to feel free and encouraged to speak about themselves and eventually to promote tolerance against diversity. The presentations of the participant countries were next. And two workshops regarding the “Priorities” and “Similar αnd different” followed.

The next day (3/20/2018) we went to the “Matka Canyon” lake in order to get to know the Skopje sights. We ended up in the “Tolerance walk” in order to propagate the project and help the citizens to a closest contact with the refugees problems. During the trip all the students were wearing T-shirts bearing the slogan and logo, they made themselves for the purpose.

Following our predetermined schedule in the next day (3/21/2018) we visited the refugees camp in Gevgelija, where we have been informed by the responsible authorities about the life of the refugees and their conditions of living.

(3/22/2018) in the morning we attended workshops by the representing of the UNHCR about the refugees and finally in the afternoon all the students wrote short essays about the refugees subject which have been presented publicly.

The last day (3/23/2018) works based on the previous days activities were presented by the students and were uploaded on “twin space”. Next “Tolerance medals” were distributed all the students and the participant teachers in memory of the project and our participation. And finally our last action was a wide and deep conversation about the future ways and actions in order to improve and get better and better the project in the future.

Amsterdam – Junuary 2018

Our first meeting on the project named “Reach out and lend a helping hand. Humanity has no borders” lasted from January 22, 2018 until January 26, 2018. And the main goal of the meeting was primarly to determine the basic elements of the project.
It took place in the CSG Buitenveldert school, Amsterdam, Holland. There we had decided the dates of the mobilities and the enrichment of the LTT activities.
During the meeting every country showed a presentation of its own activity week.
We discussed the number of the participants of LTT activities, the safety and the accomodation of the students and the teachers personel, the improvement of communication and the ways of the project dissemination.
We came to the conclusion that the LTT activities are the most important instument to disseminate the project in large groups of all the  participant cities.
We also agreed that we can cultivate the students creativity with a variety of activities, such as writing articles, essays, short stories, drawings, preparing panels, creating slogans, posters, drawing alboums, making movies, awarding the good examples, preparing logos and intervews.
Disseminating the project to a large number of  students, while being in an environment among people totally unknown to them, will give them a chance to exercise and improve their enterpreneuership.
Finally we also decided to create a website named “Humanity has no borders”
We strongly believe, the project will have a large and lasting impact on the students, on the school, and on the community.
And we hope, our project will contribute, among other things, to build a peaceful and tolerant multicultural Europe!
