Students aged between 12 and 16 in six secondary schools (France, Germany, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Turkey)  are carrying out a three-year project turned towards the future of Europe and entitled F.A.C.E. (Future, Ambitions and Challenges for Europe). We have identified various challenges that our students, as European citizens, will have to face for a better future, and which cover issues relevant to all European countries:

The environment
Economy and health
Culture and identity

The environmental and technological part of the project will lead pupils to carry out research about local environmental issues and work with environmental associations for the creation of posters for a European exhibition called "Let's face it!". The knowledge they will get regarding ecological energies and materials will enable them to propose their own innovations through the creation of models of environmental-friendly houses and of a European ecological house model which will be presented on an international environmental fair at the end of the year.

To deal with the economic issue, the students will set up real partnerships with local companies, carry out marketing actions for the promotion of their products and create a European multilingual marketing brochure. The local companies we will work with and their products will be presented on a specifically-created "Made Here" website. A real students' company will also be set up in some schools for the sale of local products and an international economic fair will take place at the end of the year for a larger impact of our marketing actions. At the same time, students will extend their partnership with companies selling healthy food products by leading sensitization actions in primary schools about the necessity to adopt a healthy lifestyle including a healthy diet and the practice of sport. These actions will include the presentation of a "Health App" specifically created to help with the health and sport issue.

Finally, pupils' creativity will reach its full expression with the creation of a "FACE" art book for which pupils will gather artworks of different types representing their own identity and culture (texts, poems, paintings, photos, etc...) as well as make their own artworks meant to epitomize their common European identity. A CD entitled "Our Faces" including local songs from each country and a European song, as well as a European play entitled "FACE" written and performed by students will also constitute the outcomes of this part of the project on European identity. An end-of-year European performance will enable them to present these creations to a large audience.
