The aim of the study visit was to increase experience and knowledge about how schools can become more inclusive by making school culture more democratic. The 25 participants came from pilot schools in Albania, the Ministry of Education, Sport and Youth, the Institute for Development of Education and representatives of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg and Tirana.
The study visit took place September 10-14 and included among others an exchange of experiences at the EWC offices, a visit to Utøya and Finstad Skole in Ski. The delegation reported that the visit gave them many ideas which could be adopted within their respective schools to create a safe learning environment and prevent bullying.
One of the outcomes of the study visit was the joint agreement to establish Twinning between the Finstad Skole in Ski and one of the pilot schools of the project in Albania for future cooperation and exchanges.
