Aranzadi Science Society piloted SfR in the Municipality of Ordizia, between June and September 2016, where 69 students aged 14 and 15 from Oianguren BHI took part. The first two classes took the course in 4 weeks and the following two in two weeks, which was interesting to see how the teaching plan worked in different time frames. Students first learned about resilience and discussed about the values that are important to them. Then, through brainstorming group exercises and a place check, they designed questionnaires to interview people about the management of transportation, food, waste and energy in Ordizia. These experiences help them to identify the needs and expectations of their community and they learned to work as a team outside regular classroom lessons.
Students then designed action plans for overcoming the challenges around these main 4 topics. They talked to a renewable energy generation and purchase company, analysed the local food market and created an advertisement campaign to encourage neighbours to use public transportation while going to the local sports center. At the end, they proposed their ideas to face these challenges that they had identified through the course in a public presentation in the Barrena palace of Ordizia.
