Erasmus: Green Spaces
The next round of Erasmus exchanges as part of our “Solidarity for a fairer world” project is now behind us. In October Werkstatt and Free Waldorfshool Augsburg travelled for a week to the southern French city of Rodez in the Occitanie region. There, the Lycée François d’Estaing has already prepared a programme for the Erasmus partners from Germany, Spain and Romania that revolved around the thematic focus of “biodiversity”.
Biodiversity is perhaps the most important asset of our planet. The diversity of habitats and species provide us with food and drinking water, supply fibres for clothing and raw materials for medicines, offer protection against storms and floods and regulate the climate. Without biodiversity, the livelihoods, health and well-being of all peoples and societies would be at risk.
Humans have initiated an unprecedented downward trend in biodiversity in recent years and there is currently nothing to suggest that this trend will reverse or slow down. What particularly threatens the biodiversity of our planet? Pollution, overexploitation, climate change, agriculture? How is the respective biodiversity in our own countries and cities? What can we concretely change and how can we specifically promote biodiversity?
All the students and partner organisations had thought about this again in the run-up to the upcoming visit. The pupils were asked to introduce and present the various green spaces in their cities.
To get to know the green spaces in Rodez, it was off to the city!
