  • International encounter trip to Indonesia on the subject of school partnerships: 11.-24.10.2020

    Partnerships between schools in Europe, Asia and Africa are changing. The old understanding of school sponsorship, in which one school receives and the other receives something, has changed: Now both partners work together on an equal footing. The concept of global learning is the focus of the debate: pupils and teachers learn together and from each other.In line with the UN goals for sustainable development, Global Learning is a future field for schools. Raising awareness of ecological sustainability and global interdependencies is a challenge.

    Due to their proximity to the profession, vocational schools in particular have a particularly high potential to put innovative ideas of Global Learning into practice.At some vocational schools in Germany, the topic of sustainable development is already anchored in the curriculum. The aim is to share this knowledge with vocational school teachers from Asia and Africa and to jointly develop further ideas and impulses.During the encounter trip, new ideas on the topic of school partnerships are to be worked out and a concept with recommendations for action for international school partnerships is to be developed.

    The participants will jointly work out what partnership means in the context of international cooperation and how these can be structured on an equal footing.In order to understand and get to know the contexts of the respective participants, they are to become active themselves in workshops and, for example, bring closer the peculiarities of their own school system in order to point out starting points for international cooperation. To this end, possible hurdles and how to overcome them will also be addressed.

    In addition to thematic workshops, meetings with representatives of the church and non-governmental organisations, there will also be time to experience Java.

    Location: Java, Indonesia

    Travel dates: 11 - 24 October 2020. Dates for preparation and follow-up days will follow after registration.

    Costs: 1.300,- Euro. For travel scope and cancellation costs, see conditions in the flyer.

    Led by: Julian Elf, UEM

    Target group: Teachers, trainee teachers, school pastors and school social workers at vocational schools who are interested in global learning and school partnerships. A good knowledge of English is a prerequisite for participating in the study trip.

    Registration: Until 28 February 2020 at regiondeutschland@vemission.org.
