All five partners have reported they have noticed a general interest in the project’s topics. Especially the students involved have shown an increasing interest and deeper concern for the topic.

Furthermore, in all schools there is a noticeable effect beyond the project. In several subjects like RE, PE, History and Foreign Languages, Human Rights have become a topic to be discussed and reflected. One class even wants to have their compulsory novel changed to one dealing with human rights (in a foreign language).

Not only in classes has this effect been noticeable but also throughout the whole school life this project has left its footmarks. The displays and gallery walks have attracted other students and raised their concern noticeable. Projects like a “Paralympic Volleyball” competition, in which the whole Spanish school was included, also drew the attention towards the rights of human beings, in this case the people with special needs. But outside the school, the effect has not been so noticeable yet. Even though the public was informed by radio shows and articles in the newspapers, direct feed-back from people not involved has not been reported by any school.
