The participants were German language learners who have left their countries of origin for different reasons. To combine these two aspects, they have chosen the topic “Flucht und Bildung” (“flight and education”) for their radio show.

Für meine Arbeit in den EU-Projekten wollte ich unbedingt meine Englischkenntnisse aufbessern, und was liegt näher, als dies in England zu tun? Da kam mir die Möglichkeit gerade Recht, im Rahmen von Projekt INTENT ein dreiwöchiges Job Shadowing bei unserer Partnerorganisation Community Action Dacorum (CAD) in Hemel Hempstead zu machen.
The EELLSS partners organised their final event on October 5th and 6th, 2017, in Kassel. The two-day event brought together more than 85 people from all the seven partner countries – among them all partners and all those teachers and students that have been involved in the learning projects.
Highlights were the European buffet with treats of each partner country , the common art project and the European fair. Read more in our newsletter.
On 31.08.17 the Landkreis Kassel invited representatives of regional enterprises for an after-work event, where the REST idea was presented and discussed. The CEO of on regional enterprise gave an interesting insight on how he succeeded in overcoming initital challenges such as language problems, legal issues and fear. He underlined that one needs some additional time and patience at the beginning of the process but that it can be very rewarding to give a refugee the chance to work in an enterprise.
It’s time for an update.
EYE stands for “Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs”, a European funded exchange programme for entrepreneurs.
In order to support entrepreneurial diversity and synergy in Europe the European Commission funds exchanges between entrepreneurs.
New entrepreneurs (NE) have the opportunity to work over a period of 1 month up to 6 months with an experienced host entrepreneur (HE) in another European country. Both parts benefit of the exchange discussing their business ideas, sharing best practice examples and contacts. In a nutshell: They get a fantastic chance to learn from each other.
In May the EELLSS partners met in Pisa. The main aim was to exchange on the state of affairs in the ongoing learning projects in the partners schools and on drafting the programme for the final event that will take place on 05./06.10.2017 in Kassel.
It was great to hear that the soil-related learning projects have brought up new ideas and initiated activities that would not have taken place without the project!
Despite all the efforts of the team … the tower is still leaning!
If you are interested in the free of charge REST support, coaching and training that will be offered in spring 2018 register to our REST community to receive further information.

The partnership is currrently trying to find answers to this and other questions. For this purpose an online survey was set up and a series of interviews will be conducted with enterprises in all partner regions. Also, the partnership tries to identify examples of good practice for the successful integration of refugees into enterprises.

In this final conference the resources, which were developed by the Erasmus+ project VALLEY to identify and to recognise skills and competences developed by young people during their volunteering experiences, and the validation methodology were presented.
We hope you and your classes will join our World Soil Day event on social media!
The idea is to introduce your class to the other school classes on December 5th. For example by posting a comment, posting a group picture or by letting your students make a short movie in which they will present themselves. Whatever suits you and whatever time allows. Find out more!
