Experience in the implementation of educational projects aimed at young people
We have been in regular contact with the partner for about two years with the aim to establish cooperation between schools. The first common activity is the preparation of the project for meeting of the students that was originally planned for 2021, but postponed to 2022 due to panderic. We have exchanged numerous emails to find out information about the partner and have had online meetings The aim was: to share the experience related to students' exchanges; to make the decision about the general idea of the project; to discuss the details of the project such as participants, contact person, place, transport and main activities: to exchange the ideas at every stage of the project; to share partners' experience in international collaboration within the AEHT association (both schools are members); to plan other activities after the project leading to long lasting partnership.
