The journey towards World Poetry Day 2020 starts now!

Through digital collaboration with the support of surrounding social actors, we cooperate with schools, mainly in Europe, but also with schools outside Europe. It has been an exciting global collaboration during 2018-2019 and we will gladly continue to develop the project. Through, among other partnerships, eTwinning (part of Erasmus +) has given us opportunities to collaborate digitally in international partnerships.

Now the journey has started towards World Poetry Day 2020 and our common challenge of creating poetry for a sustainable future. Together, worldwide, we celebrate one of humanity’s most treasured forms of cultural and linguistic expression and identity. Practiced throughout history – in every culture and on every continent – poetry speaks to our common humanity and our shared values, transforming the simplest of poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace (UNESCO).

It is easy to become a co-creator in Poetry for a Sustainable Future. Make room for sustainability issues and Agenda 2030 in teaching and create poetry with children and young based on one or more of the global goals. Use your imagination and creativity to create poetry in different languages and through different expressions. We value multimodal storytelling! An important part of the project is also to work with a library / school library in the teaching. Watch the movie clip to find out more about the project and meet the the school librarian at Söderslättsgymnasiet in Trelleborg, Sweden.
