THE EUROPEAN ABC "Awareness of Borders to Cross"

October 23, 2017

Welcome to our website Erasmus+ „The European ABC – Awareness of Borders to Cross“

We are students and teachers from high schools in Parabiago/Italy, Bendinat/Spain, Torun/Poland and Syke/Germany. We have done some great international projects in the past, and now we are at the outset of a new project. - „The European ABC“ - „Awareness of Borders to Cross“. We will not only meet new friends in Europe but also learn about the lives, hopes and fears of those young people who are seeking refuge in Europe or live as migrants in our countries. We want to look over our horizon, learn about each other, overcome prejudice and respect each other – and absorb the manifold inspirations we will get from each others' beliefs and values. We want to be active European citizens who believe in democracy, freedom and equality.

The kick off  meeting in Parabiago/Italy at the end September 2016, where directors and teachers from each partner country met to plan the project, gave a great start. Now we are looking forward to travelling to Torun/Poland in March 2017.

Meeting in Poland

Meeting in Toruń   26th March – 02nd April 2017

From 26th March to 2nd April 2017 the school in Toruń will host the partners participating in the project “The European ABC” and the  I International Basketball Tournament.

Here you can see our work during the meeting  🙂

On March 26th 2017 the first meeting of the participants of the project “The European ABC” began . Among the project participants there are also refugees from Syria and Libya who are studying at BBS Syke in Germany. The first phase of the  project – “Get Aware” will be focused on the topic “Every one of us can be a refugee”. See the first day of the meeting.

An enjoyable event during the meeting was a lesson of Polish. See the participants learning basic phrases as well as having fun.

A short report from the tournament games in Toruń.

On 28th March 2017 all the participants of the project took part in the  Museum of Emigration in Gdynia in a history lesson of the Polish emigration, showed through the life stories of those who either traveled away or waved goodbye at railway stations, at airports and in ports.

On 31st March 2017  the local community could see a project performance called “All of us can be refugees”, which was the result of the cooperation of the participants in multinational groups.

Let’s look back on our meeting  in Toruń. That’s what happened 🙂
