Between 14-16 October, 4th grade pupils from secondary schools in Coțofănești and Berzunți, Bacău county, participated, together with their teachers, in the Design for Change course.

The main aim of the event was to introduce children to the concept of community mobilisation and to identify levers for their involvement. The course took place in the framework of the project “Partnership for Quality Education in Rural Interethnic Communities”, and for 3 full days, the students and their teachers deepened the theme, working with specific concepts.

The children also showed active involvement, so that at the end of each theoretical session, they developed, in mixed teams, an activity closely related to the information presented.

With large group discussions and debates, followed by team activities based on simulations of problems to be solved, the pupils developed their sense of community, their openness to a sense of inclusion, and their ability to analyse, think critically and identify solutions to problems. Over the course of a year, the students will practice what they have learned and, with the support of adults, try to identify and solve a range of problems in the communities where they live.
