Discover Slovenia in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“Non vitae sed scholae discimus” (Seneca, ca. 62 n. Chr.) – Unfortunately, we don’t learn for life, but for school? Not at all:
INSTITUT DISCIMUS LAB – School on the treadmill, with the fire brigade, in a local history museum, in the jungle, with light aircraft and robots, in a youth parliament, at a Youth Olympics, an International Tourism Fair, in embassies, ministries, with presidents, and … even with an Emperor Vespasian reading a newspaper:

Exhibition of the Slovenian contributions in the project “Jugend schreibt” (Youth writes) on 28.9.2023, 17.00, at the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana (Mirje 12).
As part of the Slovenian-German Bridge Project, the German Ambassador to Slovenia, Adrian Pollmann, will officially open the exhibition. Former Slovenian President Borut Pahor will also speak at the event. Other guests of honour from politics and society have already confirmed their visit. The exhibition was funded by the Slovenian Tourist Board/STO.

III Slovenian CLILiG Robotics Championship.

“Podnebne spremembe ogrožajo človeštvo. Kako lahko roboti prispevajo k varstvu podnebja?

The nationwide project continues to promote robotics and foreign language (DaF) skills in 2023/24. Teachers from 16 schools between Bovec and Lendava will take part in preparatory workshops at the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana (29 August) and OŠ Ljudski Vrt/Ptuj (30 August), led by Gordana Kolednik (robotics), Gerald and Monica Hühner. The national competition will again be contested by teams consisting of 6 primary and 6 secondary school students. We would like to thank the SDUNJ, the Philos. Faculty of the University of Maribor, the German Embassy, the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana and the OŠ Ljudski Vrt/Ptuj for their continued support.

Slovenia’s volunteer fire brigades in focus

The flood disaster at the beginning of August emphatically documented the importance of volunteer fire brigades. Sara Vidovič and Evelin Kolednik researched this and interviewed Jože Šmigoc (42), Tomaž Muršek (28) and Tijan Šibila (18) from the fire brigade in Videm pri Ptuju. The conversation about the 100-year tradition of the fire brigades, its achievements and current operations is part of the work on a report for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung/FAZ, project “Jugend schreibt” (Youth writes).
