Background

The Volga, the longest river in Europe, is the main artery of one of the world’s greatest networks of commercial waterways linking the Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas. For centuries the Volga has played a major role in trade, industrialization, interactions of cultures (between the East and West) and the movement of people.

 

The project was launched to establish closer co-operation between schools in the countries which are to be found along the banks of the Volga and of the Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas. This project focused on three priority areas: World Heritage education, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue.
