Schule Teufental, September 2022

It was not difficult to fill the board. I asked the students to try to describe the topic of home/homelands, to put it into words. From hamsters to grannies, the X-Box, travelling and arriving, everything was there. 



You have a jumble of notes, short texts, long ones, they are fictional or biographical; you have diaries, photos or both and are looking for the appropriate form for them, also the appropriate form of publicity....   



A school/class builds a city. It is portrayed on a website. But not only that: the aim is to be able to present some of it to local politicians, to launch a generation dialogue and also to implement the change. The prototype is ready. The fifth and sixth classes of the Marzili school in Bern have come up with great proposals. 

The city can be visited: Here. Click! (only german)


The workshop can be booked.
