Flash mob!!!

 As final product of our project we organized flash mobs in all the cities on a specific date, 20th may They were to claim the children rights to have cities more suitable for them, more green spaces and spaces where they could meet, sing and dance together. The music chosen is a funky version of Ode to joy and coreographies steps were prepared, shared and permormed in different ways in different places.

During the mobility from Rome to Paris, 5 classes form Rome and Paris IC ferraiorni school, Vicq 'azir and Leonrado da Vinci from Paris) met on Place Beaubourg and performed the flash mob all together, with a final speech by coordinators.

After all these months of preparation we probably cannot say who did what as everything was mixed up and shared. 

A big thanks to the final movie maker , Panu form Katajanokka

Here the version with all the Ode to joy dances



And here all the performances 




 Here the video of the Centre Pompdidou with more than 100 pupils singing and dancing along

Muchas gracias Madrid

Queridos amigos: Muchas gracias por la maravillosa hospitalidad y hermosa experiencia de trabajar con usted.
Todos nosotros, los pueblos de la naviera griega, gracias de todo corazón y esperamos cumplir ... en algún lugar ... en algún momento ... todos juntos.

 In this video there is the Liittle orchestra of Tor Pignattara, the neighborhood where the Pisacane school is located. It's their first videoclip; they are young musicians under 17 who play together coming from different languages and background. For those of you who stayed in Rome in these years you can recognize the yeallow train and the Pisacane school

News from Madrid XII

 Hola amigos,


So far, Katajanokka Primary and Egaleo have booked their hotels downtown Madrid. Remember that you will have to commute about 40 minutes to the school. The good news is that is green line straight to the school area. Once you get off the metro, turn right and walk about 8 minutes; you´ll find the school at the very end of Calle Manuel Aguilar Muñoz (street´s name) . . . can´t miss it!!!

Then, LDV and IC Ferraironi will stay at Hotel D. Luis, which is near by the school. I´ll do this booking for them.

I Haven´t heard from neither Belfast nor London or the French school . . . When you are ready, visit the front page provided and fill in the required info.

Also, since we´ll be having lunch at school, let me know if any of you have some sort of allergies or intolerances or any food concern we must be aware of.

This is it for now.

Saludos desde beautiful Madrid,

News from Madrid XI

 Hi everyone,


The end of the school year happens to b around the corner. We finish lessons the 20th of June; staff remains till the 30th. And you will b in town first week of that same month. In order to help you with the hotel booking, I need to know if you want me to make reservations or to suggest you tips about this matter. So far, our teachers from Helsinki, Rome and Paris (LDV) have been in touch. I refer you to News from Madrid X blog entry for a number of informations that might be helpful to plan your trip to Madrid.

I do have an enormous amount of frustration not being able to accomplish all the aims set in London. I´ve been also pretty lost and confused trying to understand all about the new programs. I want to thank Paola for being patient with me and cheer me up in order no to give up. In any case, we keep walking toward the end of the school year as well as the CT project.

Any question, pleas ask.

Un saludo,



 Dear coordinators,

as we decided in London we're going to evaluate the project acitivities through an evaluation  questionnaire for students. I prepared a draft and uploaded it in Official Documents. Please feel yourself free to adapt , change and use it as you want. The important thing is that we'll collect datas from our schools about evaluation which will be analysed in Madrid for the final report. What do you think?
