Aichach. “Europe for Future” is the new topic of the Erasmus+ program funded by the European Union, in which the Deutschherren-Gymnasium (DHG) in Aichach has again been involved as the coordinator school since Autumn 2020. Other member countries of the project are Italy, Spain, Belgium, Croatia and Turkey. An exchange between the participating schools in these countries will take place over the next two years in order to raise pupils’ awareness of pan-European goals. The focus of this Erasmus project is on raising awareness of environmental protection and sustainability and at the same time to promote intercultural, and of course also linguistic skills. For this purpose, groups – consisting of teachers and students – from the different schools will work together in project groups on ecological issues. As soon as trips abroad become possible again under the Corona measures, the students can finally get together in the respective countries and work together there. Until then, the exchange will take place via the Internet. By participating in this project, the DHG offers its students a great opportunity to improve their language skills, and to get to know Europe as a possible learning and working space in the course of globalization.

The actual student exchange with the other European schools will have to be a long time coming. Photo: Iris Kronthaler
