Nine schools from three distinctive European areas: the North (Iceland, Norway, Finland), the Centre-West coast (the UK, Belgium, Germany) and the South (Portugal, Turkey and Spain), have agreed on participating in a joint 1012-1014 Multilateral Comenius Project under the name  "From Local Residents to European Partners".

The main aim of our project is primarily to reflect on and better understand our local communities, including city and local government, traditions, and customs. A second phase will include sharing and comparing findings, student discussions on what unites and provides a common identity for Norwegians, Icelandians, Belgians, Germans, British, Portuguese, Turkish and Spaniards as European citizens.  

By taking part in this project, we expect all participants to achieve a better understanding of our continent from three intertwined perspectives: scientific approach (environmental consciousness), social studies, and artistic appreciation.

Based on a regular exchange of ideas, the project will start with the understanding of one's own culture and grow into the awareness of different approaches to life in society. This will help students to gain an empathetic understanding of each 
others´ cultures and develop European consciousness and citizenship. 

All the activities will also address issues strongly related to current developments in school policy: motivation for learning and ‘learning-to-learn’ skills, collaborative work, content and language integrated learning (CLIL), assessment, and effective questioning.
