    The Comenius-together website has been set up and managed by the students of ITIS "Leonardo da Vinci". The idea of sharing a common website to publish articles on the topic of atmospheric pollution and global warming proved very successful. Each country contributed 2 articles per year, for a total number of 12 articles in the two years of the project. Two collections of articles were published in the school magazine and widely distributed in Carpi and in the partners' home-towns.
