A day for debates, exchanges and activities



The aim of this forum is to reinforce the “Living together at school” while taking into account the cultural, physical and philosophical diversity….



5 different workshops are offered: cultural anthropology, slam, theatre improvisation, fresco and media. The students will chose a workshop to take part in and will be able to work with students coming from other schools.

RESULTS:

110 students from the 5 schools of Brussels will take part in this Forum.

INDICATORS:

Classroom management, School conferences.

EVALUATION:

The school mediators, the teachers and the students have taken an active part in the achievement of this project.



Since January 2011, diverse concrete actions have been implemented in the classes to broach the theme of the negative influence that the stereotypes can bring or the discrimination in the relationships between persons.



For instance, after a workshop on the theme of « the same and the different », the students have written down a charter of respect. They have also participated in photo-language analysis based games in order to understand the originality of each person. Other activities have underscored the different perceptions of everyone in front of an event or an act, allowing the students to realize the influence of subjectivity in their everyday life.



The Forum represents the outcomes of these different actions.
