Cancer is a hot issue not only a disease that concerns the partner schools but the whole world. Throughout the world many people ignore the things that threaten their health. The aim of this project is among students aged 14-19 years old at the partner schools(more than 1500 pupils, aged 14-19 years old) , among many teachers and parents to raise the level of awareness against cancer and its environmental effects at a level of at least 50%. Also to announce and acknowledge the subject local-wide, nation-wide and European-wide. To reach this goal to keep the sustainability of this project it is planned to organize short term exchange of pupils (short teaching activities,team works, joint workshops, organising informative campaigns, presentations, organising fest, acting local, field visits..) and short term joint staff events team works, joint workshops, designing new curriculum, field visits…) through the medium of learning teaching training activities, also through the medium of dissemination (brochures posters, DVD, short-film, website, e-book, informative campaigns, final fest..)among parents and local people, with the help of the press among the whole society, an awareness will be constructed. The success and impact of the project will be measured by means of questionnaires, dairies and reports.After the project by continuing sharing the information using social Networks like E-twinning, Facebook will help the sustainability of the project.

The trend towards traditional will gain advantage over the global. A report, which is a result of investigations of the local law structure, will be written to lower the environmental effects of cancer, to encourage the use of harmless packages, to prevent the use of “gmo”(genetically modified organisms) in agricultural products. This report will be added to the e-book. The students will learn the similar and different sides of the local law structure.
