This is a very good example of applying theory into practice, when practice can be perceived and followed from real life. Students like such simulations. In our town there is a club whose main objectives relate to the United Nations issues. Students meet select a topic and then they debate it according to the policy of the country they represent.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
