The planned program was entirely realized except for the presentation of the project website. This presentation will be made in Lithuania during the first mobility.

The arrival of our partners was done in a staggered way from Wednesday morning to Wednesday evening. Some chose accommodation at the hotel (4), others preferred accommodation with French colleagues (4).

We wanted a first dinner together with the 4 colleagues who were not in a family on Wednesday night. Ms. La Principale and a coordinator attended this dinner.

Thursday, October 5 :

9:00 : Reception and first working time around the project, a second time is at 14:00. The following decisions are made :

◦ a group of ambassadors of about 15 young people must be established in each country. This group should be mixed, if possible, not only with high-performance students : a "tutoring" system to help those with difficulties in English.
◦ The dates for the first mobilities are fixed : Lithuania from 9 to 15 December (corrected then from 10 to 17 December 2017) and Bulgaria from 8 to 14 April (corrected then from 9 to 14 April 2018).
◦ We also agree to meet again (a coordinator per country) in France for the interim assessment : early October.
◦ We take stock of the number of participants in the mobilities. We decide that the group of ambassadors will consist of 3 students and 2 adults. Greece asks to send a third adult. She justifies this choice because she has trouble convincing new teachers to participate in the Erasmus + project. The assembly accepts his request. Nevertheless, the assembly is in agreement so that the maximum of pupils can participate in the mobilities. We believe that from Bulgaria 4 ambassadors should be able to leave.
◦ Concerning the work between the mobilities : we agree to use all the European platform Etwinning. It will allow a permanent exchange between us, and put all our work.
◦ We also agree to carry out work around the dissemination in each country : websites, newspapers, professional applications, displays.
◦ For the activities : we decide that each country will present 3 logos in Lithuania. A vote will decide the final choice for the TREES logo. We also talk about the board game and the charter.
◦ The impact survey at the beginning and the end of the project will be tested by the French ambassadors before being put online in Etwinning. A whole class level will participate in this survey.
◦ Letters of mission to the ambassadors will be sent on face-book.

11:00 : Conference led by Patrick Rayou. The theme of motivation is widely discussed.

12:00 : Meal taken together (Bulgarian dish).

15:30 : Training on the Etwinning platform. Everyone has the opportunity to register. Nearly 50 people are currently on the TREES project in etwinning live.

18:00 : Friendly meal on the theme of French culinary specialties in the presence of many college staff.

Friday, October 6th :
