Mobility in Dobrich (Bulgaria), Erasmus+ project

From the 17th to the 23rd of March, two teachers (Milagros Fernández and Manuel Jesús García) and three students (Mª Ángeles García, Nerea Gázquez and Gabriel Petkov) from IES Villa de Vícar travelled to Dobrich (Bulgaria) to represent our school in the first mobility of the Erasmus + European project "Human Impact on Coastal Ecosystems". This project, which will take two academic years, is an environmental education project that pretends to make the students aware of the need to protect and conserve coastal ecosystems, through the study of the services they provide.

Our partners in this project are schools from Portugal, Italy, Greece, Latvia and Bulgaria, countries greatly concerned with the conservation of their coastal reserves. Additionally to the scientific learning, this European project gives the students a great opportunity to get to know other cultures and lifestyles, thus contributing to the integral education of our students.

We are already preparing the activities for the next mobility in Mascalucia (Italy), between May 5th and 11th. Shortly after we will tell you about our experience. 

During the days of the stay in Bulgaria, the students participated in a set of activities organized by the host country, among which we can highlight the following:
