We want to study the most important economic sectors in our countries. Also we want to study our students' awareness of the finances within their own lives.
We will get a picture of the similarities and differences of the countries.
50 students at each school would answer a survey about economy. When we came to Pescara, we formed 4 groups and they shared experiences from the survey and compared the overall economic situation of the countries.
The groups would discuss the following questions:
What do you think the high school you are attending is preparing you for? (work, university ….?
In what way do you think school is preparing you for your future?
What perspective do you have in mind, when you choose education?
Do you have an after school job? If so, what do you do with the money you earn?
How much money do you spend on yourself each month?
Do you receive money from the state when studying or some form of youth allowance?
If you do get an allowance/grant, how much is it per month?
At what age do you think you will move away from home and be independent?
What are the most important economic sectors in your country that offer more youth employment?
In what field would you like to work in the future?
What qualities do you consider essential to have success in a future job?
Will you be willing to move to another European/non European country when looking for a full-time job in the future?
