  • Competition for the best illustration of an interview
    Each partner/ country interviewed a local inhabitant so that the students, teachers and the community could learn about the changes on the coastline and / or landscape. This work was presented by each country both in digital form and in paper format. All the interviews were compiled in an eBook and printed which was offered to each partner
  • There was the competition for the best illustration as planned.
  • Album with the migratory route of birds and research on the reservation: During the visit to the S.Jacinto Natural reservation, both the students and the teachers were able to observe the typical fauna and flora of this region. In the lagoon areas there were some difficulties observing the birds due to bad weather. Nevertheless, they were able to make a group album with what they saw, the guide’s help and some research. A book was printed and a copy offered to each partner.
  • Final exhibition / display
    The final display was made at the main entrance of the School for three weeks. Each country was represented by the activities that took place there illustrated by some pictures of moments and experiences, handicrafts and typical products (or their packaging).We chose a day, in which the students sang a song related to the theme and handed a brochure. We also presented the medal to the winning student in Romania.
