The Development Instructor Concept

The Development Instructor Concept

USA Elections - The world we live in

Goodmorning! This morning - the morning of 9 november 2016 - I woke up with the news of Donald Trump becoming the new president of the USA. The choice was between two and they were both bad really: Hillary Clinton is part and parcel of the military industrial complex, representing a kind of permanent war as the way forward, while on the other hand Trump seems to represent a true nightmare. So what does that mean for the future of the most powerful country of our planet? And what does it mean for...

Planting Actions Worldwide 

Planting Actions Worldwide 
When you talk to Lynsey Grosfield, based in Denmark, she will say tree planting is her hobby. Tree planting is, to say the least, a fortunate hobby that makes a very big difference when having a wide picture of the many answers solved when addressing the importance of nature. The list is extensive and the spectrum includes direct food dependence for millions of people as well as impact on climate change which embraces humanity.  Forest ecosystems cover roughly 30%1 of the global land area a...

How is it to live at our School!

How is it to live at our School!
  When I come to think how have been my life during more than a year at the school many memories and feeling invade me, so many that I don’t even know where to start… My very first experience with this big and nomadic family started being part of a building weekend. I didn’t even know where I was coming to or what could I expect and then, after a long trip someone picked me up and brought me to a beautiful place full of wonderful and ordinary people having fun and working together to leave ...

Can you be cool without attending school? Can you be cool when you waste food? Can you be cool while making a trash pool?  Can you be cool while taking part in a shopping boom? Can you be cool - or are you one fool – by making this planet uncool? Cool people help a warm planet.

First week at the School by Carla

First week at the School by Carla
I knew that my first week was going to be hard because I also had been advised a few times about it but I think it was amazing.

It was an incredible week with people from all over the world and we were working together to carry out something huge. I met amazing people with who I talked with about life experiences similar to mine and those experiences helped me to be sure that the prog...

Arrival to this school by Ayae

Arrival to this school by Ayae
When I arrived to this school, I was nervous because this is my first time to stay in Europe. But actually everybody was really nice to me and tried to understand what I would like to say in English. Also this program is nice because I can stay in the school with my teammates all day, so we can be like a family. A lot of people from many countries come to this school. So my expectation is not only for studying how to fight with the poor. I expect to be able to experience the cultures of many cou...

The ABC about Volunteering

The ABC about Volunteering
Hi! If I ask you about the alphabet, you will probably recite me the 26 letters in one go. You also probably know about the funny game where one person chooses a letter and the other participants have to fill in different categories with a word starting with the same letter. Don’t worry, I don’t want to remind you your first days at school! This is not what this article is about. But, if I tell you about the “ABC of something”, it is about the basics of this something. This something I want to t...

End of Year Speech

End of Year Speech
At the end of 2016 I have to say: I am sad.  Let me explain this: I am sad because this year great things have happened. Now I am not sad because they happened. No. I am happy for that. But I am sad because it will be hard from now on to go beyond that and because it will be hard to stand up and do better. I have accomplished great things of which I am very proud. I fulfilled a dream that I had. The dream to see another world and to touch someone's life, the dream to make a difference. I ha...

REASONS WHY I´M HERE!

REASONS WHY I´M HERE!
I´m Vanessa, teacher for the Climate team and a former DI for the 18 months’ program “Fighting with the poor” May 2014. The reasons why I´m still here in the school are various and broad but let´s get a bit into perspective. When I came here I met so many people from different places with a common goal. “Let’s unite to change this world”. My team, which I adore, made me work a lot with myself since we had, as I said, different ways to look at things; but what mattered the most to me is the pur...

A report about our visit in the NFC by Christopher Hartmann member of the Climate Activist Team October 2016

A report about our visit in the NFC by Christopher Hartmann member of the Climate Activist Team October 2016
We visited the Nordic Folk Center at the beginning of the week and stayed there until Wednesday. Although I had expected it to be more related with Nordic Folklore it was no disappointment at all. Actually it was very impressive. The NFC is a kind of testing ground for renewable and sustainable ways of energy production and living. Especially for solar and wind energy. Companies from all over the world, whether they operate in Europe, USA, or Asia, propose NFC to test and monitor their products....

Experience of the people’s exam

Experience of the people’s exam
So, the first people’s exam is over and it was awesome, not perfect of course, but it was really really good. When I heard that the exam is happening, I was a little concerned cause when I hear the word exam or test I flashback into my days at school. It was always related to panic and fear when I heard that I had to write a test or something like that. This one was different. It was the most comfortable exam I ever had. We had a quite big audience but that was no problem at all. Me and my team ...
