Inform families and students about students short term exhange

On  February the coordinator Gemma Gutierrez, Iratxe Cuñaso and Garikoitz Alvarez met the families and students who would take part in the short term exchange on 8th March in Katerini Greece.
The meeting started with a presentation of the project. Parents were shown the objectives of the project again and where the project can be found in order to invite them to participate in it. 

First of all, they saw the magazine of the project on line so that they could see the summary of all the activities done in the first year of the project  We continued with the activities created until now, the transformation of Bilbao through the River, the visit to Urdaibai and Guggemhein museum. They also saw the Greek ones.
Then, we informed them about the first students´short term exchange.They were presented different slides such as the planes  schudules, the necessary documentation, the code of conduct,the planning of both schools, the matching of the students according to their profiles.
We ended with the notebooks of the project which will be written by students as a diary .
We answered all the questions and doubts families had about it.

It was a very fruitful contact.

They do it in the same way as they do in Brussels in the European Parliament so that they experience what is being done in Brussels and at the same time  European bureaucracy and issues  is brought  close to their real lives.
