The colour RED
Home Meetings Results


A multinational school partnership project

The direct contact with people and their social reality allows you to better understand
 the diversity and greatness of HUMANKIND.

Summary of the project

As The Colour Red is the title of the partnership the students will do research on various aspects concerning this topic. Several areas of the students’ lives will be dealt with – everyday life, literature and art, politics and history, moral concepts, natural sciences and research. So the students will research the lives of European members of nobility having lived in the neighbourhood of the participating schools and their influence on the life in society. The students will compare their findings with their own values and ideals and with the ones of the students from the partner countries. They will deal with the importance of the colour red in literature as well as in flora and fauna. A lot of fields of the school curricula will be included – native language and literature, history, maths, sciences and foreign languages. The improvement of the students’ methodical competences plays a vital role in the planned partnership. The students will organize and carry out projects as well as present and evaluate them. Furthermore working with modern media will be trained. Writing letters and e-mails and having personal meetings will enable the students to exchange their knowledge, experiences and opinions about the topic and to present their project results.
