    Learning for Life : Today's Teenagers are Tomorrow's Europe.

    In this project young people from Denmark, England, Latvia and Spain worked together to produce a handbook for their contemporaries giving information and advice on various subjects of relevance to young people today. During the first year of the project students worked on topics such as training and educational opportunities available after school, leaving home, going to university and living on a limited budget. Starting from what they already knew about what happens in their own country, they carried out research and at two project meetings began to compile entries for our “Student’s Handbook” (see below). In the second year of the project, pupils continued with topics such as making the most of yourself in job applications, living on a limited budget and healthy living and well-being. They continued to produce pages for the Handbook and also filmed their activities; the film-clips were viewed during the final project meeting, after which the definitive version of the Handbook was produced along with a DVD of all the film-clips. The topics to be covered during the project were chosen to optimise the chances of all our young people of being able to train, to find a job and to cope with life as a young adult. All the material produced for the Handbook is available in the languages of all participating schools. The Handbook exists in paper form (hard copy). A DVD of the film clips is also available.

    We compiled all our presentations and findings into a Handbook giving information and advice on what to consider before deciding to go to university, different places to live at university, how to live on a limited budget and how to live healthily. We included recipes, games and photos of our meetings.
