In the project six schools from the Czech Republic, Spain, Turkey, France, Portugal and Italy were enhancing the European dimension of education by promoting joint cooperation activities between them. Partnership aim was to study various aspects of production and consumption of energy, with emphasis on the sustained management of resources and on environmental risks, to build a realistic attitude towards them, to measure energy consumption, and to propose how to cut down on it.

First, students did on-line researches on national energy/coal/oil/gas/ uranium resources. Afterwards, they presented, compared and contrasted the results of the countries involved. They discussed problems of the sustained management of resources and a common questionnaire on resources aspects were prepared and used in all countries. Students met energy experts and visited power stations, heating plants, energy saving houses/factories etc. They took their own measurements of energy/ electricity/heat consumption and suggested ways of reducing it at home and at school.

Besides their managing work, teachers prepared CLIL lessons and/or e-learning didactic units with a topic of energy. Each school put its results on its project website.

The common work and above all seven project meetings taught the participants about countries and their cultures, improved the language knowledge, motivated them to study languages, and contribute to building new Europe.
