The objectives

All topics were dealt with in pupil orientated workshops, designed and held by the pupils themselves thus fostering their creativity and their self-esteem. “The individual matters – your opinion is important to us” – this was the motto of the workshops, regardless whether it was a workshop covering ecology, cooking, sports or the designing of a website and the e- diary. The own activity and entrepreneural competence of pupils were supported in order to improve their chances for a future career.

The workshops with pupils and teachers from the six participating countries provided the following results:

1. Catalogue of measures

There is a catalogue for each partner school for a sustainable change with respect to an ecological and socially sustainable living space. Existing national programs were compared and a mutual implementation plan for each school has been set up.

2. Evaluation report

Evaluation report concerning all measures taken in the six partner countries: This evaluation report evaluated the achieved results of each partner school. Additionally there is a catalogue of measures dealing with how best to implement the measures in other schools in the region. We aimed at being pioneers in the regions of the 6 European countries and intended to help other schools in the region to create an ecological and sustainable school environment.

3. Project website

This project website was designed as well as a project logo: To inform all stakeholders (school authorities, communities, parents, interested public) about the school partnership and its results.

4. Cookery book

Compilation of a cookery book in English: A selection of meals from all 6 partner countries in a cookery-book. Regional specialities were cooked at each Learning/Teaching/Training Activity making sure that only ecological products are used thus guaranteeing healthy meals.

4. Sports interviews

Analysis of the possibilities for sports activities and for spending the spare time in the 6 partner schools: Young people from the 6 European countries were interviewed about their spare time activities and their sports activities. The interviews are published on the project website. There were also sports days during the six Learning/Teaching/Training Activities.

5. E-diary

E-diary for the project website: For a detailed documentation of the project and the various Learning/Teaching/Training Activities there is a photo diary for the website.

6. Project evaluation

Evaluation of the Learning/Teaching/Training Activities: All participating pupils and teachers got a questionnaire after each meeting. The results influenced the planning of the next meeting thus making sure that the project always was at a very high quality level.
