Our project is organized by the following activities

Each school decides for its institution how to carry out activities in accordance with age and abilities of their pupils.  Dates below are approximately and will be adapted suitable to the partners holidays and examination dates.

Photos will be taken continuously during project activities for the photo walls at each partner school and will be sent successively to all partners supplemented with some notes in English.

At the end of each activity a form will be completed. It will hold what had been done, reason for choosing it, how it was executed, results and annotations. When all partners have agreed on what to collect in our online-manual the corresponding forms will be translated into English. The forms of each school in national language will be kept in the folders of the corresponding institution.
