Students could become more interested in learning possibilities abroad, taking part in student exchange programs. Local citizens and students’ parents involved in the project will have possibility not only to improve their knowledge and skills thus improving their competitiveness in local labor market but also to meet and communicate with other people because people there have limited possibilities to spend time together. The students’ parents will become more involved in school life, they will be better informed about their children’s achievements and problematic issues.As a result, we will develop the idea of sustainable school as a place where people can get qualitative lifelong education and develop each individual’s potential.
