Your world in focus - Tu mundo en el visor
Within the project "Your World in Focus - tu mundo en el visor" more than 300 young people from Germany, Nicaragua and El Salvador dealt with aspects of their living environment in a journalistic way and engaged in a global South-North dialogue with self-written contributions. The subjects of the reportages were chosen by the students themselves. In several workshops they learned about the basics of journalistic work and techniques of photography and how to develop ideas for their own posts and discuss them critically. Between the workshops the participants tested their skills by working in teams to create one reportage.
Parallel to the process of creation, there was a continuous exchange between the students of the three countries, which went well beyond the project period. On the online platform www.tu-mundo-en-el-visor.org steps were documented, photos and videos uploaded and comments were posted. The compiled results of all participants were then analyzed together: similarities and differences emerged, certain perspectives and points of view were uncovered and ideas for future joint activities were developed
Exhibition and booklet
Selected articles were published in a bilingual exhibition and a booklet.
During an open day at Melanchthon Secondary School the exhibition was opened with music
and a speech by the head teacher. Also at Wilma
Rudolph Secondary School the exhibition was presented
solemnly during an open day. The Carlo Schmid Secondary School associated a panel discussion with the opening of the
exhibition. It was held in the
auditorium with all Spanish classes
in the presence of representatives
of our partners in the South, CEDRU, ADM and APOKAM. After that the young participants
presented their classmates
the exhibition and
Exhibition and booklet can be used both in school education as well as in non-formal education. As multipliers the students provide their answers to classmates and other people (family, friends, other schools). This way, a lot of people can take part in the global learning. If you are interested in the exhibition and / or the booklet, please contact Raphael Schapira.
