Egypt - Cairo
Dr. Nermien Ismail Language Schools
Partner school for the C-classes
Dr. Nermien Ismail Language Schools, which is centrally situated in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, was one of the first schools that we established contact with after we decided to launch the Global Citizenship Programme in 2011.
With help from DEDI, The Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute, we sent the first delegation to Egypt in the fall of 2011. When the contact was established another visit followed in january of 2012. In April, Rysensteen hosted a visit from Egypt and the final contract for the collaboration was signed.
Since the school year of 2011/2012 the class of 2011C has studied Egypt from many different academic perspectives, which among other things, has resulted in a webpage with articles in both Danish and English. And - as you can see - the Egyptian partner class has also posted articles on the webpage.
One of the latest projects that the C-class of 2011 has been involved in within the framework of the Global Citizenship Programme is an extended collaboration with the institute of Cross Cultural Studies at Copenhagen University (ToRS).
