We are a French high school working with Finnish, German and Spanish partners on the internet to collaborate on environmental issues and sustainability, educate our students as to green ethical living, compare our diverse problems and the local solutions implemented by the local authorities, so getting to know one another better, and, at the same time, improving our ICT skills. We use a collaborative platform : http://www.nibis.de/~gymhimmel/index.htm. Here in France I publish our school work on my school site : http://www.lyc-cordouan.ac-poitiers.fr/anglais/. My pupils get help on our forum : http://www.lyc-cordouan.ac-poitiers.fr/forumpeda/viewforum.php?f=3 and we all collaborate on a wiki to prepare an "ecoguide" that's to be published on recycled paper : http://www.lyc-cordouan.ac-poitiers.fr/eco-guide/doku.php?
1. Sommario progetto
Sustainable European Citizenship ( SEC) is a partnership of four secondary schools in Germany, Finland, France and Spain, focussing on climate change and the young people’s ideas on the means of alleviating its present and future consequences.
After a calculation of the ecological footprint, each school will focus on the most crucial local issues: Spain on water availability, Germany on air pollution, France on the protection of sea sites and Finland on sustainable forestry. All findings are to be published and exchanged on a common website. Eventually, a guide to « Sustainable European Citizenship » and a glossary will be published in the four languages involved and printed on recycled paper.
Gymnasium Himmelsthür, the coordinating school, will host the first exchange in autumn 2008.
The work at school will be done according to the respective curricula. Some 30 students per school are actively involved in the exchanges and all schools will share the procedures and results. The local communities are both bases for the practical work and actors for disseminating the ideas resulting from the programme.
Sustainable European Citizenship comprises a two year-round work , regular on line contacts and four exchange visits to each school and area with pupils.
"Together we can do more!" is our motto and our emblem is the greylag goose as it flies over our 4 countries along its migratory route.
I am at the origin of the project as I found our Finnish partner on e twinning, he had already worked with the German partner and later found the Spanish colleagues, we had the same idea of working on environmental education using digital tools. Here is a summary of our exchange visit as we hosted our partners last May,
our project is to end in September 2010 with the publication of our multilingual brochure prepared on the wiki during these 2 years.

exchange in English, improve ICT skills, share about different European environments, raise awareness on environmental issues and imagine common solutions to similar issues, show the importance of acting locally in harmony to work for the environment on a global scale, and so experience a true feeling of European Citizenship
Come, e con quali mezzi cerca di raggiungere gli obiettivi prefissati:
describe our respective areas on our platform to get to learn from one another, work in English on economic, scientific topics while studying innovative technologies linked to green living and to learn about the interdependance of animal and vegetal species, linguistic work to add data in the 5 languages on our wiki. using these diverse tools enables us to educate our students in the information field : rights, privacy, the differents means of collaboration on the net...
Please explain what is unique or special in your project:
our pupils and the staff particularly enjoy creating strong links of friendship with people we just didn't know a few months before
Describe the results of your project as per today:
two of the four exchange visits have been done and strong bonds have formed between the 4 partners
our brochure is well on its way as plenty of data is already stored on our wiki. more skilled pupils tutor the others as to the use of this platform and this really is an living example of harmony and positive work between peoples of various cultures but who share the same values.
In che misura risponde ai bisogni degli utenti:
the students of the 4 schools improve their knowledge in English, natural sciences and information, all subjects of their syllabus and key to their future work life
Quanti utenti interagiscono con il progetto mensilmente e in quale modo:
20 pupils and 4 teachers of each school
Descrivete in quale modo il progetto contribuisce a migliorare l'educazione e la formazione dei giovani:
great impact on the relations between teachers and students, working in English in collaboration with teachers of different disciplines within each school, so more collaboration between teachers, sharing teaching methods. the fact that the work done by the students is published online is rewarding for them, writing is not just an exercise, it is a production

Che cosa possono imparare altri soggetti dal vostro progetto:
other teachers from the 4 schools get an example of the students' pleasure to collaborate with foreign students, we notice the wiki was very motivating and most students added data from home and so did a nice amount of homework on the vocabulary which they wouldn't have done normally
Siamo disponibili ad aiutare altri soggetti a sviluppare progetti o a migliorare progetti esistenti:

13. Informazioni aggiuntive
this is a two year long Comenius project
some difficulties arose as our school systems are different (holiday periods and exams dates)
we managed to harmonize our visits and the work even when it meant working during bankholidays
Future plans and wish list:
we plan to distribute our brochure as largely as possible with the help of the local authorities and also to enforce changes in our schools to limit our ecological impact
