Topic: Environment-pollution knows no boundaries, so, no matter where it happens, it may exert its harmful influence on life not only where it occurs, but anywhere in the world.
This is the reason why we have chosen to examine the effect of environmental harms on our health, and the ways we can eliminate or reduce environmental hazards. We also plan to examine different ways of cross-border cooperation that are necessary in order to protect our health in a cleaner, more liveable environment, working for sustainability at the same time.
raising the young people’s awareness of the damage done to our health (for example asthma, allergy) by environmental problems
calling attention to the necessity of international cooperation in addressing these problems
developing a citizen’s attitude in order to approach the problems consciously, in a responsible way, for a better future
raising awareness of the fact that the above are common European values
