a. To get a new view of the world around us
b. To empower young people with tools, the knowledge and skills they need to communicate in the future world
c. To deepen the relations among the European young people
d. To create background for further educational plans
e. To improve the command of English language
f. To be familiar enough with modern IC collaborative tools and to improve their use through developing blogs, WebPages or Power-Point Presentations
g. To experiment with new learning methodologies
h. To learn how to work in international teams
i. To know the cities, the schools, the likes and the dislikes of our partners and exchange ideas about the way young people live
j. To develop critical thought and explore the European perspective
k. To exchange information about cultural differences and similarities
l. To obtain intercultural knowledge, experience and computer literacy
m. To make friends in another country and, if it is possible, visit their cities
Students involved in this project worked in groups in France, Spain, Romania and Greece, introduced themselves to the others, described their family, the school environment and the educational system, discussed about their region and their city (architecture, houses within the sustainable development context, civilization, culture).
They exchanged ideas, suggestions, opinions, plans, designs, and images using IC tools.
They made crossword puzzles, riddles and diagrams trying to communicate and explain their customs, their interests, their hobbies and whatever they think their future will be like. They commented and published the thoughts and the opinions of their collaborators about studies at University or job via blogs, power-point presentations and web pages.
The students exchanged images, photos, videos and texts.
By working on the Internet and using ICT tools with the partners from other countries they have also realized the universal character of the Internet and its power.
Communication in English among students via ICT was very important.

Europe Day is celebrated on 9 May.
This event is in the calendar of most of the schools throughout the continent.
In this European Year of Intercultural Dialogue, teachers and students will in particular celebrate cultures, as an asset of European integration.
Today, the 9th of May has become a European symbol (Europe Day) which, along with the flag, the anthem, the motto and the single currency (the euro), identifies the political entity of the European Union. Europe Day is the occasion for activities and festivities that bring Europe closer to its citizens and peoples of the Union closer to one another.
It’s not them and us, it’s you and me.

With this occasion, Piteşti has tried to register a record, to be among other famous cities around the world.
More than 20 schools, as well as more than 5000 pupils from Piteşti and from the towns around it, have taken part into breaking an old record, dancing in the centre of the town for 3 or 4 minutes, wearing white T-shirts and fashionable jeans, their goal being to succeed in entering Guinness World Records.
The chosen theme was “the dance of the flowers”, being in harmony with this remarkable event.
Me and my pupils, we have visited the Exhibition of FLOWERS!
