Introduction

Finland is responsible for reporting long haul activies of participating countries of Erasmus+ Humrev. The questions for participating schools were: 1. What is the situation of long haul activities in your school - done so far? 2. What special long haul activities you are still going to focus on and carry out next? In the blue colour there is an text from the description of the ERASMUS+ PROJECT chapter 6.2. Long Haul Activities. And in black colour there is answers of each school. This makes easier to compare the aims and the situation of long haul activities.

GERMANY

6.2. Long Haul Activities (ERASMUS + PROJECT

Human Rights IN A EUROPEAN COMMUNITY OF VALUES )

GERMANY: "Diversity coach”, training program to promote the School about racism, make students think and motivate them to have an active, social involvement. Audiovisual record of all developed activities. ALL: Project outreach activities through the media.”

Germany: Gymnasium in der Taus

Human Rights became a huge part of our curricular in year 10 (History and Politics). We adjusted the state's curricular accordingly. For History and Political Studies this means that the students were not just given extra information but we held discussion on topics like "The right to be a child: The Taus rejects the idea of (forced) underage marriage." In year J1 (History) we worked on German songs during the 19. century in which the author and the singer which stood up for Human Rights and was likely to meet incarceration or unemployness.  Also during History lessons two groups in Year 8 workes upon WOMEN'S RIGHTS and created a banner to be placed on the floor's wall. Alo in year eight music classes, playing a vital part in the Liederabend, looked and worked on new songs that express this position today and performed them at the Liederabend.

We also got other subjects and teachers to join the cause and so our Year 10b class produced a survey on the ecological footprint during Biology classes.

In Religious Studies the following projects took place. "How to deal with God's creation in a responsible way?" (year 5), and then a "Putzede" (cleaning up session of our school premisses) by the same class.

In English by "Economic and environmental aspects" and "Today's food producemen (factory, organaic,GM food)" the right of nature and the right to unpolluted nature and were discussed. On top of that 10b asked to be taught the book "un-arranged marriage" in English to learn more about forced and underaged marriage. The book is now on the school's reading list for year ten.

In Spanish Human Rights in America were a topic too in Year 12.

Besides these activities during lessons the  Students' Council is also doing regular activities focusing on people whose rights have been trespassed upon, to say the least.

Our school is part of the network German schools without racism - schools with courage and so e.g. had a stall at the local Chirstmas market to support the cause.

We will still focus on the environment. Will have a day when everyone has to walk, cycle to school or use public transport or car pools. RE want to repeat their cleaning session next year.

To celebrate the Children's Rights Day we organised a small photo gallery with some materials prepared by Social Science students after visiting the nursery school in Codigoro the previous weeks. During the visit the students interacted with children and took photos to point out the different aspects of what the right of children to education basically means. On Monday 21st November the gallery became the meeting place of about 50 students and a short video was made during the walk. Two days earlier, on 19th, we teachers of English, showed our 4th -year students two UNICEF videos (one in English and the other in Italian) about children's rights and then we discussed about the meaning of celebrating such an important day.

To celebrate Peace Day the Religious and the Social Studies departments were involved.

A gallery with the photos taken during the workshop “The Words of Human Rights” organised in the Mobility Week in Codigoro was set up. 3rd-year and 4th-year students of different study courses reflected in class on the meaning of peace from various points of view. On 27th January, a group of students, of different origin and nationalities, read significant messages of peace in their own native language, while standing in front of the pictures of the gallery.

International Women’s Day – We involved the History and Law departments who worked with a group of girls, attending three different study courses, and carried out with them a simple but really interesting research activity about the development of Women’s Rights in Italy, with a special focus on certain laws as well as on some prominent Italian women of the past, quite unknown to students. The work was then visualised in posters that a group of girls presented to their classmates, gathered in our Erasmus+ meeting hall on 8th March.

Earth Day - We agreed with Spain to celebrate this day as an e-Twinning live event on 26th May. The video-conference about “Water Sustainability in Spain and in Italy”  was organized as follows: - involvement of one class of 20-25 students; - students were divided into 5 groups: G1 water resources and uses of water in Itay / Spain-G2 the water footprint in Italy / Spain -G3 the consume of tap water vs bottled water -G4 Do's and Don'ts (students' habits and resolutions to spare water). An open discussion and the conclusions were planned but unluckily the initial technical problems took some time to be solved, so we agreed to get to give conclusions after exchanging our works by email. Our group work was the result of the cooperation of the Science department with CADF, the public water supply company based in Codigoro.
