The idea behind the initiative will be creating socially responsible citizens in the future and in the process evoking creative and illustrative skills of the young minds of the society. The process involves the collaboration of students from different age groups and given its multidisciplinary nature, the project aims to promote group learning and team work between groups and cycles, strengthening the ties between students, blurring the role of authorship in favour of creative cooperation.
