The Italian secondary school "Rino Molari" of Santarcangelo di Romagna and the French "Institution Notre Dame des Dunes" of Dunkerque have compared the ways of reducing the human impact on our environment through various activities whose results have been broadcast on youtube and uploaded onto the etwinning platform that tracked our work . Our students have focused on preserving biodiversity and on recycling waste materials to help sustainable development. They’ve walked about nature reserves, visited waste processing plants and environmentally-friendly companies; they’ve been to the local university, to crucial research centres and museums of cultural and scientific interest, both in France and in Italy. Thanks to the mobility our students have shared their partners’ lifestyle, have learned how to co-operate with each other, broadened their cultural horizon, improved their skills, become aware of environmental issues and, most important, made new friends. All these features have been listed in our students’ Mobility Europass and exchange visits have been promoted through presentations in school, through the local press and our school website. This amazing experience gave rise to a number of documents that have marked the several phases of our path, but the most remarkable outcome is a Sustainable Tour Guide that allowed our students to discover the beauty of their region and to reflect on the importance of protecting our landscape. Copies of the paper Sustainable Tour Guide were given to Santarcangelo’s Council-Library-Tourist Information Centre, to Rimini’s Library, to teachers and students. The PDF version of the Guide can be downloaded from our school website and the link was passed to all institutions that welcomed us in Italy. The paper Sustainable Tour Guide is archived in our school library and in nearby schools’ libraries. Teaching slides and worksheets, to be used in nearby schools, derived from some works realized by the Italian team.
