The first phase took place on October 21 in the middle of the day with a number of students gathering in the very central part of the school - teacher's room - designing and cutting out images of trees as well as printing out images of leaves in colours of national flags of the countries participating in the Project. Having done that teams of students spread around the school putting up everything on the walls with the main tree and Comenius sign facing the main entrance to the school building.

Kick Off-Event in Stockholm

The students at the Lycée Français Saint Louis in Stockholm came to school one September morning to discover that their school had been invaded by trees and other forest-like pictures.

They saw that a 20m liana was running through the main staircase and strange letters were pasted on the ceiling. The message read: Comenius Project TREES!

What a surprise for them! They were all wondering what was happening..."What's Comenius?" some were asking and "Wow, what a change! Can you tell us what's going on?" some others were saying.

The Comenius club students were glad to answer all the questions...that's how the project started in Stockholm!
