Our partnership project entitled: "Preserving biodiversity and local natural resources: sustainable development in two specific areas (Monbazillac
and Sibiu)" has five main objectives:
- to enable learners to acquire and/or deepen the notions of sustainable development, ecology and biodiversity.
- to develop European citizenship
- to enable them to practice English, the working language of the project
- to improve their use of digital communication tools.
- to encourage transnational exchanges by having them work in groups or French/Romanian pairs
Our project will be carried out over a period of 2 years, starting in September 2020. It is a bilateral project between the LEGTA de LA BRIE of
Monbazillac in France and the Colegiul Economic "George BARIȚIU" of Sibiu in Romania. The teachers in charge of this project will be Mrs Carine SAGAZ, Mrs Steluta-Mihaela RĂULEA and Mr LEGENTIL.
The project will include four training mobilities with four meetings with pupils from each country working in pairs for the project, detailed work on the themes of sustainable development and biodiversity using the e-twinning platform, social networks, the production of interactive videos in English about the various places they will visit, the creation of a website which will host the written and oral expression work as well as the active
participation of the pupils during the video conferences.
This project, whose target language is English, will develop the European citizenship of French and Romanian pupils, whose discovery of the many facets of the two countries will strengthen their feeling of being a European citizen.
Why a project about biodiversity?
Because biodiversity is a heritage of ecological, economic, social and cultural importance.
The aim of this project will therefore be to make pupils aware of actions implemented, such as natural parks, to preserve biodiversity.
They should also be able to identify endangered, vulnerable and invasive species, the main threats for their survival and the consequences of their disappearance/presence on ecosystems.
The development of European citizenship will involve discovering Romania or France, as the case may be, their respective position in Europe, and the historical, geographical, socio-cultural and agricultural aspects of each of the partner countries.
The project will encourage learners to study the following question: what is European citizenship? They will realise that one of the key affect of the European construction is the important role it confers to citizens. Normally, in traditional international organisations, only states are directly concerned by the decisions adopted (such as the United Nations Organisation).
They will learn that the concept of European citizenship was introduced by the Maastricht Treaty in 1992, as well as the rights and duties which fall within the scope of European citizenship.
In terms of language, pupils studying English in their training course and having opted to follow English "European Section" courses for French learners, will practise English, the working language of the project, for all work in oral comprehension, written comprehension and written expression skills, with particular emphasis on continuous and interactive oral expression.
In the age of the Internet and social networks, the project will rely on dematerialised communication tools facilitating exchanges between partners from both countries. In particular, pupils will communicate via applications such as "Skype", create a website dedicated to the project, but also create slide shows and use video tools.
