What is TeenTV about?

  • These nine schools situated in countries which span from 23° W to 23° E and 64° N to 28° N and speaking a different language each, are challenged to produce their own “images” “films” on common themes, using English as common language.
  • Different realities of each country, different mentalities, will be expressed and projected on the products which will be the means of contacting and understanding cultures which seem “foreign”. Simultaneously though, the opportunity will be given to “see” common and shared realities and learn how to take these into account in joined efforts like this project.
  • Some schools are absolute beginners in media techniques and others feel confident in these activities.The different degrees of experience in media techniques of each school will instigate further collaboration among schools during the programmed visits and promote team work, not only among school mates, but among different nationality students. Through common work deeper bonds of esteem and conviviality are being created which is the base for respect of the other.

Lastly, the project has the ambition to offer enjoyment to its participants as every sincere and genuine effort does.
