Students mobility – 26 -30th November 2019,  Palma –  Spain

Day 1  – Arrival Day – Bellver Castle

The first to arrive were the Portuguese delegation after a long journey from Moura. After the welcoming session, we had a school tour and a visit to the exhibition “ El Mur de la Vergonya” which consisted of pictures taken by Politècnic students denouncing gender violence. 

Day 2  – Iceberg Event

The second day was spent mostly at IES Politècnic. After the video presentations of the schools and a kahoot to break the ice, students worked on the Gender Violence Iceberg in order to learn  and reflect about the visible type of violence and the invisible ones, presented their research work on the facts and figures of gender violence in each country and shared the different mechanisms that each country has to report gender violence.

Day 3 – Women in the technical world

The day began at school with the writing activity “Erasmus+ Manifesto against Gender Violence” and the round table “In Feminine” where women of different ages and current female students in Politècnic high school explained their experience developing jobs typically associated with men such as air conditioning technicians, IT technicians, train mechanic, carpenters or electronics technicians. They emphasised the importance of developing the job that one really wants to do, regardless of the stereotypes society imposes. Afterwards, the group had the chance to learn and discover more about those jobs in our VET workshops and reach the conclusion that jobs are genderless.

Day 4  – Stand up against gender violence!

Students started the day gathering in groups to reach conclusions and carry out the evaluation of the program. This was followed by a micro theatre play called La noia de la benzinera based on real cases of victims of gender violence and an interesting debate with the audience and the actresses 

Day 5   – Sóller and Serra de Tramuntana

The last day on the island was devoted to visit Sóller, a town on the north west coast of Mallorca linked by the historic railway Ferrocarril de Sóller to Palma. The electric train dates back to 1911 and meant a wonderful journey for the students and teachers crossing the Serra de Tramuntana mountains.
