Learning Together and Creating Together in Pécs, Hungary

February 8, 2010 at 17:28 Leave a comment

In November 2009, about 20 Roma and non-Roma children aged 7-14 started a new weekly after-school activity, as part of the “Different People-One Europe!” campaign.  Led by a team from the local Roma association ‘Khetanipe’ , children from the Heroes Square school in Pécs, Hungary started learning about the European Union and campaign themes such as intercultural understanding, acceptance of others, respect for diversity and social inclusion. Through the use of drama pedagogy and cooperative learning methods, the children are learning together, working together and creating together.  On the basis of their ideas and common understanding of the slogan “Different People – One Europe”, the children will paint two large sheets, which will be hung on walls in the city, at various events in February 2010. Khetanipe will also produce a short film of the local campaigning actions. The work of the children is expected to be exhibited at various events throughout the year, since Pécs is the European Capital of Culture in 2010.
