Comenius-projects 

Løkenåsen Skole has participated in four Comenius-projects.

2013 - 2015

In 2013-2015 the project is called "Streets of Europe". Here we cooperate with schools from Poland (coordinator), Germany, Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey.

The theme of this project is “what we see around us on the streets, both social realities such as unemployment, living conditions, migration and everyday life.”

This is how the motivation for this project is described in the application form: «Changing times and the globalization of all spheres of life, social change and growing unemployment, migration of people forcing the need to train the young generation in the spirit of internationality, understanding and respect for differences and diversity.”
