The final product of our project is a booklet. It’s the best way to share all the experiences done in our four cities. You can use it as an example to develop similar projects or activities in your schools or towns. We hope it like you and be useful!
The European Union points out that the habits among European children have changed during the last years. TV, the Internet, computer games and smartphones compete with more physical activities and it has lead to more sedentary activities and more limited social life. The spontaneous outdoor games are more and more replaced by the digital world. Our project focuses on our students’ health and to help them finding healthy habits. School today has an important and an increasing part of getting all children and young people to be physically active. In Sweden the government has proposed that all young people should be using their body by walks, biking, running or playing at least an hour a day. The students have created short ads to encourage each other to move and use your body and to have healthy habits. In our corridors at Lugnviksskolan the students have put short ads, so everybody gets reminded that this is so important.

This week, in Pou de la Muntanya school, in Dénia, the last of the transnational coordination meetings of the Erasmus + KA2 #TastingSchools project has been made. In it, teachers from Kaland Skole from Bergen (Norway), Lugnviksskolan from Östersund (Sweden) and Giacomo Ferrari Institute from Parma (Italy) participated.
After two years of shared work, it’s time to finish this interesting project that has been co-financed by the Erasmus + program of the European Union. During this time, we have developed four thematic blocks: Let’s visit, Let’s cook, Let’s move and Art & Cooking, each with several sections: research, visits to the environment and use of new technologies.
During the meeting, we evaluated the mobility of students and teachers, held last week in Dénia, and we have been working with the booklet that will collect examples of everything we have worked during these months. Also, we worked and discussed about the final report that must be drawn up to send to the Erasmus + National Agency.
The cultural program of the week has included the approach to our culinary culture and the singularities of Dénia as a Creative City of Gastronomy declared by UNESCO.
One of the activities carried out throughout the project, and to establish bond between the participating cities, has been the exchange of photos related to the different cities. In each city, a period for taking photographs about representative sites, made by students, was opened. A first exhibition was held in each centre. Among all the photographs taken, each city has chosen the 10 most representative ones. Later, we carried out an exchange of the same photos in order to exhibit them again, this time the 10 photographs chosen by each city. This exchange was carried out on the mobilities. In this way, students have been able to enjoy them, get to know the project partners better and get closer to other cultures.
The 4th of April teacher organized a special afternoon for students and pupils, In the Anna Frank Primary School . They proposed to them Gregg Segal’s exhibition, an activity where they could recycling coffee pods, an activity where mums and dads discovered how they can use the food that usual is trashed and an activity about the organic compost. All these activities wanted to show how is possible to give a new life to the objects and the foods. We only need a bit of imagination. Are we a creative city or not?!?
