Eight project partner countries have prepared a project on the theme of national tale heroes and ecology. First,each partner will present its own national tale with its hero to other countries and so indirectly also present its culture and tradition. Afterwards each partner will write a new tale, including national tale heroes of all participating countries, on the subject of environmental protection. We have chosen tales to be the starting point of our project because we believe that tales have the power to spread their message all over the world and can be a strong motivating factor for activities in real life. By implementing ecology in our tales we want to make children conscious about environment. Students will have a chance of expressing their imagination and use their writing, art, drama, internet, foreign language, photographs, communication... skills. And we believe that by being a part of this project the participants will not just have a stronger sense of ecological awareness, but also learn to value their own culture and respect other cultures.
