Eco-Schools - The COM-U project, Communicating environmental actions to children and youth implemented an awareness raising campaign on the EU environmental policy and in particular the sixth environmental action programme. COM-U was a national demonstration project (between 2009 and 2011) and was partly financed by the EU fund LIFE+. The main objective of the project was to create a well informed generation that has the tools and the power to act and is able to tackle environmental issues.
