"The Ways of Europe" project started in November 2020 from an initiative of the Liceo Fracastoro of Verona. It immediately found two ideal partners: the Spanish school of Pontevedra Sek Atlantico Internacional and the French Lycée Edouard Branly of Amiens.
On behalf of the Headmaster of the liceo Fracastoro, we welcome and thank
Reynald Eggenspieler and Gonzalo Garcia Fernandez for being with us, together with the two language colleagues Maria Elena Arrebola and Manuel Vatbled, who will take care of the practical work with the classes.
The 3CL class of Liceo Fracastoro has taken part in this project. All the languages studied are involved: English, Spanish, French. One of our objectives is the development of communication skills from a European citizenship perspective.
"The Ways of Europe" intends to promote civic and educational purposes as well as didactic ones, through the world of walking and slow tourism, from an environmental and sustainable perspective.
In particular, we have chosen the three roads that cross our cities: the Via Postumia, the Via Francigena and the Portuguese Way to Santiago.
We hope we’ll be able to accompany the students on some of these routes next year.
In the meantime, we have been studying them. The students have created multimedia presentations that have been published in the eTwinning TwinSpace platform and are going to share them in three conferences with the help of experts.
