Project financed by the European Union

THE AIM of the project is to raise awareness among many people from different countries, cultures, traditions, and ways of life about the environment and the products we use. 

In the first year of the project we want to focus on positive aspects and problems of the environment in the schools’ local areas. 
In the second year of the project we will concentrate on sustainable and responsible consumption. 

As a first step the students will identify the environmental problems and then look out for ways to solve them. They will create solutions which may be used in every partner school.

Young people, by being brought into contact with environmental problems and different ways of consumption can learn a lot from each other. Students will use information and communication technologies and English as working media. Local and regional institutions will also be involved in the project. These institutions will be chosen due to the progress of the project.

Throughout this project all people involved will experience that we live in different cultures and are all together responsible for acting in a way which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
