SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD

In a globalized world with all itspros and cons, intercultural learning has a very important role. Global problems can be solved only through co-operation with mutual understanding. While intercultural learning in the school has upto now remained in the domain of teaching a foreign language, this school project shows new possibilities in the realm of environment and technology. It has its place somewhere between international engagement and intercultural learning for meeting the global challenges. Above all, it contributes to a very important practical engagement in science and technology. Education is the key to sustainable development.

The project "School Partnership" belongs to a practical oriented education in modern and future oriented energy technics. The job szenario is attractive so as to arouse a sustainable interest in technical studies. Therefore this project offers value addition to the educational brand offered in schools like Friedrich-Schiller-Gymnasium in Marbach am Neckar.

With nearly 2500 students in role, Friedrich-Schiller-Gymnasium is one of the top general education category high schools in Germany. World openess, intercultural learning, technical education and future orientedness have a high rating in the school which is reflected in the numerous international contacts. From the standpoint of FSG, this was the compelling reason to initiate a German-Indian school partnership, which has its thrust on the scientific and technical education with special emphasis on "renewable energy and climate protection". This is also an important topic in the subject "Science and Technology" for the 10th grade. The realization of this project is actively supported by the "Verein zur Förderung Entwicklungswichtiger Vorhaben Stuttgart e.V.".
