Environmental issues are becoming more and more prevalent nowadays. It is important to help students have a better understanding by becoming involved in projects. Environment is a kind of concern which should be interest of mass movements. By this school partnership at European level, there will be hundreds of pupils and parents to take action for a global issue threatening our future. The cooperative work is of vital importance to do something effective and unforgettable. Through the cooperative work done to offer solutions for a common problem, the participants' communication skills and interpersonal dialogue skills will improve in an European dimension. Besides, when the pupils recognize the differences and understand what different countries may also have in common, they would get the idea of "European citizenship".
The project consists of 3 stages.
Stage one: students will meet for the first time and will begin developing the partnership. Participants will identify similar problems, and develop ways to address them in school curriculum.
Stage two: students will implement a recycling system for each school and will design a theatrical play to include younger students.
Stage three: students will identify a green project for their local community, and listen to seminars in environmental science and development. Each participating school will identify a building in their community that is in need of repair. Students will use their newly gained knowledge and create plans, which will include blue prints and plans for renovation of the building. These plans will be presented to each town council.
The project is student based and focused. Student inclusion is essential for the success of the program. The project will also provide students and teachers to cooperate at European level and to manage intercultural dialogue. The students will improve their learning and individual skills and the teachers will improve their professional and personal skills by the activities planned during the project. The new friendships among pupils and understanding the lifestyles of other cultures will clear away the bias towards foreigners.
