Η χρήση πειραμάτων, οι συμμετοχικές διαδικασίες και οι προσεγγίσεις που βασίζονται στους ίδιους τους μαθητές, στοχεύουν στη βελτίωση των ψηφιακών δεξιοτήτων τους ώστε να μπορούν να χρησιμοποιούν την ψηφιακή τεχνολογία, ενθαρρύνοντας το δημιουργικό τους δυναμικό, και τους εμπνέει να αναλάβουν δράση προάγοντας την αειφορία. Οι μεθοδολογίες που θα χρησιμοποιηθούν κατά τη διάρκεια του προγράμματος είναι ο Κύκλος Kolb (Ο κύκλος Βιωματικής Εκμάθησης), Μεθοδολογία Waldorf γνωστή και ως εκπαίδευση Steiner, η οποία φιλοδοξεί να αναπτύξει πνευματικές, καλλιτεχνικές και πρακτικές δεξιότητες των μαθητών με ολοκληρωμένο και ολιστικό τρόπο. Η καλλιέργεια της φαντασίας και της δημιουργικότητας των μαθητών αποτελεί κεντρικό θέμα.. Κύρια εργαλεία επικοινωνίας για τους εταίρους θα είναι το Διαδίκτυο, τα ηλεκτρονικά μηνύματα, οι τηλεδιασκέψεις, η σελίδα έργων Facebook, το Skype κ.λ.π.. Όπως είναι εμφανές πρόκειται για ένα ενδιαφέρον, καινοτόμο αλλά και φιλόδοξο πρόγραμμα το οποίο ευελπιστούμε πως με τη συνδρομή όλης της σχολικής κοινότητας θα καταφέρουμε να φέρουμε εις πέρας υλοποιώντας δράσεις που τελικά στοχεύουν στο να εξοπλίσουν τους μαθητές με επιχειρηματικές γνώσεις, δεξιότητες και στάσεις που τους επιτρέπουν να ενεργούν, ευκαιρίες που συμβάλλουν στην καταπολέμηση της ανεργίας των νέων, τον κοινωνικό αποκλεισμό, την αντιμετώπιση άλλων κοινωνικών προκλήσεων και την οικοδόμηση πιο βιώσιμων κοινωνιών. Το ταξίδι ξεκινάει με επίσκεψη στο σχολείο της Σαμψούντας, Samsun Anadolu Lisesi από τις 4 Νοεμβρίου-8 Νοεμβρίου 2019 και ακολουθεί η επίσκεψη των άλλων σχολείων στην πόλη μας περίπου στα τέλη Φεβρουαρίου 2020.
