Comenius Individual Pupil Mobility
During the school year 2007/2008 the European Commission wanted to try for the first time an individual exchange programme for high school students in ten European countries. The exchange lasted for 3-5 months, from September to February and involved 300 students, who went to live with a family and attended classes in a foreign school.
The realization of this project was assigned to the European Federation for Intercultural Learning (EFIL) and in Italy to Intercultura Foundation. Italy participated with the highest numbers: as many as 81 Italian students went abroad, while 83 students from other European countries came to Italy.
The Danish scholar Søren Kristensen followed the whole project, and made an assessment, submitted to European Commission officials.
The Intercultura Foundation has invited Soren Kristensen in Italy to submit its conclusions during a conference in Milan on Thursday, September 25, 2008.
