Training activities – 5. Learning visit to Iceland

At the beginning of 2022 a window finally opened to plan a face-to-face pupil training meeting.  The partnership decided to give all the pupils who had participated in the ENGAGE project and piloted the ENGAGE learning course and opportunity to meet in Iceland from 28th March to 4th April.  The visit to Iceland was hosted by Nesskoli Primary School in Neskaupstaður in the eastern fjords of Iceland and took place both in Neskaupstadur and in Reykjavik.  A total of 39 pupils took part in the visit along with 11 teachers.

The aim of the final training event was to share the experiences of participating in the ENGAGE learning course and coming up with new solutions to sustain their local communities.  Each partner school prepared an exhibition of the solutions their pupils came up with which was then open to the public in Neskaupstaður in advance of the final ENGAGE multiplier event.  Each school also prepared presentations and brought delicacies from their home towns and home countries to share during the exhibition.  During the stay in Iceland the pupils had an experience to work on creative tasks together aimed and team-building and intercultural understanding.  They also had the opportunity to speak publicly on their experiences in participating in the ENGAGE project, the meaning for them to have their voices on issues of their local communities heard, and the competences and lasting multicultura friendships they gained during the project.
