22 May From a shipping container to the House of Diversity, a project of IES Rodanas
IES Rodanas, thanks to the financial support and interest of La Caixa Foundation, has made it possible to convert a ship container into a versatile space for recreational activities, coexistence and work. It is a space that arose from the illusion and has been imagined and built by the students together with their teachers. They have called it "The House of Diversity" and it is a reality built by the whole educational community and with the support of several institutions.
The initiative arose from the 'Citizenship School' of the coexistence team of this educational center located in the town of Épila, Zaragoza. It is based on the commitment to diversity and inclusion.
The students have participated in workshops in which they have made models and learned everything they need to prepare the interior. The house of diversity is a sustainable and self-sufficient space as it is equipped with solar panels to generate the energy necessary for its operation.
