With the help of the project, the students will identify the problems that exist in their area and with the support of their teachers, they will organize an action plan. They will search for local factors to support their actions (animal welfare organizations, municipalities, NGOs), develop collaborations, schedule talks and presentations, create information posters, and propose to community and local government, actions to address problems related to the protection of the animals. In the final phase of the program, all the activities of the schools will be posted on the project website, http://drasimathitwn.blogspot.gr/, to complete the "Library for Animal Protection Practices". Also, any school involved in the program will be considered a member of the "School of Animal Friendly Schools".

Initially, the children will work in national groups to map the problems in their local community. Later, they will meet online in transnational groups to try and provide ideas/solutions to the problems of their partners' local communities. After putting their ideas to action, they will record the results of their work and present project process and products to family and friends at a live transnational celebration!

Holistic learning tools and experiential educational methods are invested in our work. We invite people and groups of every age and walk of life to participate in workshops, trainings, retreats, volunteering schemes, outreach programmes, festivals, community gatherings and experience the power and inspiration of living in Unity with the Self, Nature and co-humans attuned to the truth, joy and generosity. "Korogonas Ark" constitutes an initiative which listens to the call of our era and responds to it: low eco-print, plant-based whole-food, empathy, inner peace, self-knowledge techniques, respect to every manifestation of life upon mother Earth, peaceful activism, community building (singing, circles, action, education, communication).

We are a team of eight primary school students from the private school "Elliniki Paedia". We are working on a power point which we are going to present to the students of the public school of our neighbourhood. The content will be the harmful effects of the wood smoke of fireplaces on the atmosphere and our health. We aim at informing students and motivate them to discuss about this problem with their parents. Moreover, we are going to inform them about the proper ways of using fireplaces that will not pollute our environment. We will print leaflets with instructions about the proper use of fireplaces which we will give to the students to take home. Additionally we are going to distribute these leaflets to residents mainly to local shops and places many residents visit.

Our aim is to beautify the so-far-undeveloped hill so that locals can benefit from such a place in an urban area. After the completion of our project, visiting the hill will make people - and especially young children - recommit to the conservation of nature as well as raise awareness to environmental problems in the area. This hill can become an example of how each one of us can make a world of difference if only we take action. Our 10-year-old students visited the hill as part of the preparatory work needed. They were asked to make a field survey, writing reports on the specific problems and mapping the hill. Then, they were asked to present their reports to all students and prioritise the problems by voting for the most urgent. In groups, they made suggestions and offered solutions. The last stage will involve the students walking out of the classroom for a second time to take action. Some of the activities planned are the cleaning up of the hill and the hiking trails, putting up bins and signs for recycling, creating picnic areas by constructing wooden benches and tables, planting of trees and plants (an agricultural engineer will teach us all about the area's flora). At the same time, the students will run a campaign so that all the students of our school as well as the town council and the community will be informed on this environmental programme.

We will make use of whatever is available around our school and 'upcycle' it. We are planning to make our own benches, frames, tables, working places,boards! Turn our school into an enjoyable place to be!

We will work towards raising awareness of our peers and community about the importance of eating healthy, growing our own food, preserving water and protecting the environment. The students will gain a new understanding about living in harmony with nature.

We will start with the history of the monument and st. Isidoros' life. Then we will write down the damage done by people or time to the monument and we will contact the local community, as well as the authorities for information or help to bring the problem to light.
