Funkenflug - 2000 Schülerwünsche für ein besseres Schulsystem: Auftakt zur Bildungswende

„Wir sind Schüler. Wir gehen nach Berlin. Zu Fuß. Quer durch Deutschland.“  Das ist das Motto der Funkenflug-Bewegung.
Funkenflug lädt alle engagierten Bürger dazu ein, gemeinsam daran zu arbeiten, dass Schulen und Universitäten zu Orten werden, an denen jeder Mensch mit Freude und Begeisterung seine eigenen Talente entdecken und entfalten kann. Ziel ist es weg von Druck, Selektion und Einzelkampf zu kommen, denn jeder Mensch ist wertvoll. Daher laufen Schüler von verschiedenen Orten in Deutschland nach Berlin. Am 5.  Juni treffen sich alle in Berlin, um  gemeinsam mit Politikern eine fundierte Lösung für eine neue Art des Lernens zu finden. Funkenflug hofft, dass ihre Denkanstöße die Funken für ein besseres Schulsystem sind. Schullust, statt Schulfrust lautet die Devise! Marianne Obermüller ist Mentorin der Funkenflieger und unterstützt das Projekt seit der Entstehung.

It is about providing the appropriate support for dicovering and unveiling of mental potential. In the Friedensraum conflicts between students, teachers and parents can be prevented and solved peacefully by using means of mediation.
