The project was started in 2006/2007 and will be finished in 2008/2009. Pupils aged 15 – 18 are involved in the project. The pupils of Riga Secondary School 25 guided the pupils from Realschule Billerbeck in Riga and Jurmala, and the pupils of Realschule Billerbeck acted as guides in Billerbeck, Münster and Bremen. All the information about the towns was summarized and a film was also made.

Similar co-operation and exchange is planned with a school in Sweden. All materials will be collected and available for other schools wishing to prepare alternative guides.
