Students who want to bring transparency in schools attended the FairPlay Autumn School
27 October 2015

70 students who want to make a change, say NO to plagiarism and promote transparency in 20 high schools they attend have participated in the FairPlay Autumn School, organized as part of the Youth for Transparency in the Education Project with the support of the United Nations Development Programme.   

The agenda of the five-day school included interactive activities applying innovative tools like fishbowl debates, role-playing games and a FairQuest, intellectual games „What? Where? When?” and Trivia, a Transparency Olympics and a Fairstival, etc.                    

„I have learned many essential aspects related to integrity and its importance, more than I have before at school. I have many things to tell to my classmates and teachers upon my return to school, particularly since I learned many examples and methods of interactive activities to make with my peers. Together with the most active students from my school we will create groups to disseminate, in an interesting and convincing manner, the message to support transparency in education”, said Constantin Semionov, a student at Nicolae Casso High-school from Chiscareni (Sangerei).             

The participants in the Autumn School were selected among the students attending the high schools included in the Youth for Transparency in the Education Project. The evaluation took into account their contribution to high-school activities, volunteering in their community, their involvement in local youth centers and student/youth councils, etc. One important condition for participation was to share the knowledge gathered during the autumn school with their classmates and teachers.         

„The Autumn School used interactive and gaming methods to make young people understand the importance of integrity and transparency in the education. We are glad to see that the FairPlay Autumn School convinced them that change starts with each of them and they are determined to make it happen”, stated Zinaida Adam, Capacity Building Consultant, Joint Integrated Local Development Programme.                                             

The Youth for Transparency in Education Project is implemented by the Joint Integrated Local Development Programme with the financial support of the UNDP Global Thematic Programme on Anti-Corruption for Development Effectiveness.
