Interdependence or Death

The motto of professor Jose Pacheco, from Portugal, founder of the famous Escola da Ponte paraphrases the famous "Independence or Death" assigned to the emperor Dom Pedro I when he proclaimed Brazil's independence in 1822, and will surely resonate for a long time in the hearts and minds of the more than120 participants of the Global Seminar Curriculum: Rio + 20 Goes to School, held at the State School Julia Pantoja on Saturday, June 16, 2012.

Footbal for Development

Workshops for schools

Throughout the month of June, ARPOK provided innovative workshops to the schools participating in the Global Curriculum Project. Pupils and teachers had the chance to experience global education beyond the classroom. They were introduced to the pedagogical power of sports and more specifically football in delivering global education. Pavel Zwak and Ansley Hofmann led different workshops on the topic “Football and Development”.

A primary school full of artists

Global education in the GEPS Marktgasse

On Friday the auditorium of the primary school Marktgasse was changed into a "showroom". A whole year students and teachers were creative in different art projects on several topics. And the results are impressive! For that reason parents and interested parties have been invited to marvel at the work of the little artists at a real vernissage.
