The project '' Creating sustainable schools'' aims to promote sustainable development in schools. Nine European schools from Cyprus, Finland, Greece, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland and Romania will carry out some joint activities, which will promote the following main issues of sustainable schools: (a) restructuring the surroundings of the school, (b) consumerism and reducing waste, (c) nutrition and (d) travel, traffic and climate change. Each issue will be examined for a whole term. Each year, there will be four meetings in order to find out whether the objectives of the main issues examined were met and to organize the activities for the following term. Activities such as organizing informative campaigns, recycling paper, CO2 footprint and promotion of traditional products are some of the joint activities that are going to be carried out by all schools. Each school plans to involve the parents of the students and the local community to the whole process of the project.All schools will produce an introductory DVD, to present their school and they will also participate in a logo competition. The final joint products of the project will be a knowledge game with questions, a fairy tale and an educational suitcase with educational material.The progress of the project will be evaluated by each school separately and by all schools jointly in the progect meetings. The products of the project will be published in the local mass media and will be uploaded in the webpage of each school, in order to inform the local community.
