The European educational network  


Welcome at

Cooperation with UNESCO schools

From 25 th to 28 th October, the chairman of "Education Lavanttal" and project manager of the European education network "EcoMedia Europe" stayed in the French capital Paris.
Eile took the opportunity to visit the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.

With the Austrian UNESCO Ambassador Ms. Claudia Reinprecht he had an interesting exchange of experiences.
On the subject of "New Media and Communication Techniques in Education", UNESCO and the European Institutions, in collaboration with the European Educational Network "EcoMedia-Europe", they are pursuing the same goals, according to the UNESCO Ambassador Dr. Reinprecht.

UNESCO schools have a model character, which expresses itself in a special pedagogical attitude. Learning is understood as an action-oriented process. Interdisciplinary, intercultural cooperation and a high degree of teamwork are maintained at the school. Topics such as World Heritage, sustainable development, peace education, human rights and gender equity, biodiversity and climate change, tolerance and interculturality are treated in the classroom and taught in project work.
At the same time, the schools are critically examining the consequences of rapid technologization by increasingly focusing on information literacy.
It was agreed to exchange the international experiences in the education sector.

There was a guided tour of the UNESCO House in Paris. In the Austrian Embassy was an interesting exchange of experiences on politics in France and a look at the future of Europe with former Secretary General of the Council of Europe and former Minister and today's President of the European House of Paris, Ms Caterine Laiumiere. An impressive european personality.

On the Austrian National Day Herbert Eile was invited to come to the Embassy in Paris for a reception. Here new interesting contacts could be made.
