Systa, Nuria and Gruffalo in Athens!

I, Sigurbjört Kristjánsdóttir from Iceland, and Nuria Prade from Spain
were so fortunate to go to Athens in Greece for annual e-Twinning conference 2016 from 27. – 29. of October 2016.

This year all the topics focused on Digital Citizenship or how e-Twinning can develop European next generation of active citizens.

It was a great experience and the highlight for us was to recieve award for the Gruffalo project in Peyo Yavorov category, for the project that encourages a love of reading among young people.

Here you can see all ceremony of eTwinning Awards 2016.
Gruffalo and representative of his Team is on stage from 59.00- 1.02.20! 

The conference was held in a beautiful hotel called Continental and it was almost right beside the famous Akropolis. The participants were about 600 people from all over Europe and it was a great opportunity to meet and get new friends and contacts in other countries.

We got to see a little of the city but it was a great adventure and great to see and find out what is going on in other countries and what children, teenagers and grown ups are experiencing and learning through e-twinning projects.
