Love my city
The project ,,LOVE MY CITY" reunites 6 schools from France (coordinator,) Austria, Denmark, Norway, Turkiye and Romania (partners). Our project motto is Alvin Toffler message:

This partnership offers students and teachers in our schools the chance to learn together and exchange examples of good practice about the use of new technologies in community life, about healthy eating and well-being, about religion and beliefs as defining elements for social competence, about traffic safety, the inclusion of students with special needs in city life and the protection of the environment and the use of renewable resources.
