The Twin schools project

The Let's Take Care of the Planet project encourages intercultural exchanges between young Europeans to enable young people to open up to the world, to make the link between the local and the global, and to bring the EDD projects intercultural dimension motivating for students.

While physical meetings, made possible by the organization of Local Conference, Regional, National or European, concern only a small number of participants, the distance exchanges enable young people, to return and stay in touch throughout the year. Institutions participating in the LTCP project can become partner in another European institution.

These "twinnings" mainly aim at developing linguistic and intercultural exchange between young people and encouraging the sharing of knowledge and experiences on education for sustainable development projects led by young people. This is also an opportunity for them to strengthen their understanding of all of the plurality and complexity of the world by comparing their local issues on a thematic and those of their twin schools.
