Having lost four partner schools, the remaining four partner schools successfully reorganized the distribution of work and the schedule of the project meetings. Due to the earthquake in Italy the meeting in Roseto had to be cancelled at short notice. The National Agencies were contacted.After raising the students' awareness concerning European themes, we focused on getting acquainted with our partner schools by preparing lectures and information leaflets. The students became involved in European politics by visiting the European Centre in Rome, and attending lectures and discussions with European politicians and experts. Role plays in Rome and Brussels enabled the students to actively learn about the European Union . The results of the meetings were taken back to the partner schools and were discussed and further developed by the individual classes in the partner schools. Through websites and exhibitions the ideas and results were shared with the larger school communities. The following European topics were particularly looked at: Taboos, the Bologna Process, the environment, language learning, visions of Europe (creative writing), European politics.The culmination of the project work was a role-play debate inside the European Commission in Brussels where the students discussed and voted on law proposals they had developed in their schools.
