Second short-term mobility with students in Spain: “How is the city I want to live in?”

The week of November 11 to 15, IES Escultor Juan de Villanueva school hosted the second mobility meeting of the Erasmus + project “The town I want to live in: a sustainable approach # MyTown2020” that deals with how to find and provide solutions to improve the quality of life in all four cities of each participating country, using the concepts of sustainability, pollution, health and energy efficiency.

In the first mobility meeting, which took place in the Czech Republic, the students took stock of the environmental and quality of life problems existing in their cities, using citizen surveys and preparing a noise map.

In this second event in Spain, the participating students from the four countries have presented ideas that contribute to sustainability in their respective cities, as well as examples of sustainable buildings and cities whose model could be moved to them, or that inspire changes towards an improvement of life quality. In this task the students have worked with the support of the participating teachers in the various subjects.

The Spanish school have been visited by 21 students and 6 teachers from the other three countries, who joined the local 23 students and 8 teachers. The three students who returned from the two-month mobility in the Czech Republic have also participated, as well as two other Czech students who have also been in the Spanish school in a 2-month mobility, all of them with the same project. In total, 49 students and 14 teachers from four nationalities have been participating in the meeting. Visiting students have stayed in families of the participating students.

In the program of activities of the week a reception was held to the multinational group in the City of Siero by the municipality, a 3D modeling computer workshop with the Sketch-Up program aimed at proposing improvement solutions on city plans , and a presentation of the sustainable experiences of the four cities in the Municipal Auditorium, with the presence and participation of the City Council, which in turn exposed the EMUSI sustainability program financed with EU funds for the 2018-2023 period.

As for free time, visits were made to the Museum of Mining and Industry of El Entrego, to the Botanical Garden of Gijón, as well as a climbing activity at the Gravity Climbing Center of Avilés.
