The project generally aims to increase awareness and cultivate a new way of approach among the new generations of this cross-border region , regarding environmental issues and the impact of their "friendly" behavior to the protection, promotion and management of natural resources. The creation of the "Code of conduct for an environmentally friendly behavior in Schools", the creation of Eco-Clubs and Environmental Boards in schools along with the Green School manual are a contribution of the project for improving the access towards environmental issues (namely energy, waste and water), in both countries.
