Project meeting at Champagné

The TREES Comenius project has an enriching and packed project meeting at Champagné close to Le Mans in France.

Having arrived on Saturday the partners from four countries met on Sunday to get to know each other and watch different feature films connected to the project's topic of trees and forests aiming at discussing its meaning for our theme and the messages conveyed.

The following day was dedicated to getting to know the beautiful old town of Le Mans with its cathedral and many timbered houses on the one hand and on the other hand to visiting a workshop on the use and production of wooden instruments from all over the world. The definite highlight was a visit at the palace and gardens of Versailles the home to three French kings in the 17th and 18th century. Especially vsiting the gardens showed students a strongly regulating approach to nature as being totally opposed to for example what they saw at the natural forest of Bialowieza in Poland.

Working at school the final day is dedicated to getting to shared results, for example writing fictional diary entries of people working and living at Versailles or reporting on the instruments the students got to know. As well the European garden will be planted in Champagné like we did in Warsaw and Stockholm before.
