The Committee of UNESCO defined the April 29th as the “International Dance Day” for each year. In order to celebrate it, we organized a school event in which we practically summarized some folk and modern, greek and international, dance styles to learn to overcome all cultural, political and ethnic boundaries. Dance helps to unite people in the name of peace and friendship, allowing it to speak the same language, serving Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being and Goal 4: Quality Education as well.

The Erasmus+ students of our school had the great chance to attend the educational seminar on the utilization of modern technology for a sustainable environment that was held at Egnatia Street Management Center. There we observed on monitors and got informed by members of the staff about the technological construction and control coverage of the country's largest motorway, aiming at the safe transportation of the citizens. Thus, we served Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

It has been a really good experience and an interesting activity spreading Goal 3 “Good Health and Well Being” and also an example of Goal 4 “Quality Education”.
A day devoted in Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy and Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production was May 15th for the Erasmus+ students of our school.

We are a group of 15 students in grade 9th. We follow a Program to Improve Learning and Performance (PMAR in Spanish, Programa de Mejora del Aprendizaje y del Rendimiento).
This is part of the actions that Spain is taking in order to reduce the rates of early school leaving, according to the Europe 2020 targets.
As part of our Erasmus + project “Agenda 2030: that’s our challenge!”, we have transform a neglected plot into a garden. We have been working in secret and now we want to show you our Secret Garden as our contribution to Goal 4 “Quality Education” and Goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities”.
The Erasmus+ team made a particularly interesting educational visit to the innovative label company D&A LABEL A.E..
With the informative guided tour of the owner of the company, students had the opportunity to get to know the design and promotion of a multimodal object, the label of a product, in terms of its aesthetic and functional value.
They also noticed the development of production and printing technology from the traditional to its modern digital format. The company executives printed our own Agenda 2030 logos and offered them to us, as well as prepared a mini reception for our sake, during which the students asked questions in the form of an interview to the owner of the company.
The whole process proved to be beneficial, creative and enjoyable, while at the same time it served Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.
Make new from old - is the motto of the new CSO Repair Café - a garage, where students and teachers repair bikes. Instead of throwing old bikes that don’t work anymore, we try to use every piece of them and reuse them to repair other bikes. Those old bikes we get regularly from our local police station. Normally, we don’t have to pay a lot for the spare parts. And this way, we can fix bikes of our customers in a cheap and sustainable way. Of course, not all parts of old bikes can be used as spare parts. So we also have a small storage of new parts. Nevertheless, it’s much more affordable than in a normal bike shop. Moreover, our students learn a lot about how to maintain and repair bikes. This is pretty cool, since in summer a lot of people love driving their bike. By the way, most of the students in the Repair Café are from the „Welcome Class“, which means they just moved to Germany a few month ago and still have to learn German before visiting „regular classes“. Luckily, you don’t need a lot of language to act sustainable. We are really happy to have this working group, helping us with our bikes!
IES Clara Campoamor from Alaquàs, within the Erasmus project, and focused on the objective 14, life below water, has made an action to raise awareness of the big problem of the proliferation of plastic and its accumulation in the water of rivers and seas.
Plastic takes hundreds of years to degrade.
Plastic that reaches the sea implies a great danger to the life of the sea creatures. In addition, many species ingest microplastics that, through the food chain, end up at our table; these plastics are very dangerous for our health.
There is only one way to avoid this terrible pollution: a dramatic reduction in the use of plastic, especially that one of a single use; and the personal engagement with a proper recycling of all the plastic material we use in our daily life.
We have made a recreation that represents the ocean invaded by plastic.
The trash material used has been collected in previous actions such as the cleaning of the beach of Massamagrell, the Alameda of Alaquàs and the playground of the school.

The eco-audit can be defined as aspects on different concepts (water, electricity, recycling, mobility, consumption, noise ) related to the environment and different countries.
In order to know and reduce the consumption and improvement of the environmental qualities of the world where we live, which was one of the main issues of the project, which was the 2030 agenda, it can also be said that it is a learning technique to raise awareness of the sustainable use of the previous resources.
In this project the students of Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece have worked in the eco-audit making various projects like
We first contacted them through a "Twinspace" forum. To put in common a series of questions which would later help us to make some graphs. Once we put the questions in common, each country answered them and once we had the results we obtained the percentages. Finally we passed everything to different graphics

Thanks to its strategic location and its dynamic area of influence, the Port of Valencia is a key player in Spain’s foreign trade.
Valenciaport is Spain’s leading Mediterranean port in terms of commercial traffic, mostly containerised cargo, due to its dynamic area of influence and an extensive network connecting it to major world ports.
Valenciaport is not only a key element in promoting the Valencia Region abroad, but also the maritime gateway for production and consumer goods to and from the entire Iberian Peninsula.
More information about Valenciaport: https://www.valenciaport.com/
In Valencia we generate an average of 1.4 kilograms of rubbish per person per day, and this creates an unsustainable situation in the medium and long term for the environment.
As part of our Erasmus + project “Agenda 2030: that’s our challenge!”, grade 9h students have participated in the workshop “Recycling with the five senses”.
