OBJECTIVES
All project partners are committed to the development and fostering of student exchanges in order to:

1. Develop or customize a minimum of five course components (projects, case studies, exercises, etc) which focus
   on the environmental needs, norms and values of small and medium enterprises (SME) in each country. The
   environmental fields of activities for the courses will be mainly in political, economic and ecological aspects
   along with cultural differences and approaches into cultural awareness.
2. Develop, among faculties involved, community assessment exercises which examine the immediate impact on the
   environment of these cross-cultural encounters.
3. Establish and promote student mobility among the participants in the consortium through mutual recognition and
   portability of academic credits, foreign language preparation for Canadians students (including basic Dutch and
   Finnish if required) as well as cultural preparation, pre-departure and post-return in combination with faculty
   exchange, in order to offer the students the opportunity to study or complete an internship abroad.
4. Recruit 24 Canadians students (graduate or undergraduate), that will have the opportunity to develop
   environmental awareness with communities from other cultures by examining different environmental approaches
   along with their impact on systems and SME, for the equivalent of a semester.
5. Encourage cooperation and collaboration during faculty exchanges (a minimum of 9 consortium faculty
   members), during faculty tour and when attending meetings in the partnering countries.


EXPECTED RESULTS

The main focus of the program is to foster student exchanges and to establish a network of scholars and practising
environment professionals working towards the development of joint curricula which will, thereby, promote and
increase co-operation and exchange of ideas among the partner countries.

The following results will be achieved:
   1. The development or the customization of a minimum of five e-based courses or components (projects, case
        studies, exercises, etc) which address issues on environmental issues identified.
   2. The development of a questionnaire by faculties involved to evaluate the community assessment of its
        environmental awareness and practices. An examination of the impact of the immediate environment (natural,
        social and economic) on this assessment will be done by faculties and students and shared with colleagues as
        papers, case studies or lectures.
   3. The establishment of student mobility exchange by the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding among
        the participants’ institutions in the consortium through mutual recognition and portability of academic credits
        and faculty exchange.
   4. An actual mobility of 24 Canadian students and 21 European students (graduate or undergraduate) to have
        productive experiences with community environmental centers and/or families from other cultures. In
        studying/working, students will be able to observe and experience business practices and community
        approaches. They will also examine the impact of environmental strategies on SME supplies chain. For
        example, they will be able to analyse if business productivity is more costly for them, in other words what the
        cost benefits is, etc.
   5. An actual exchange of 9 (3 from Canada and 6 from Europe) faculty members who will develop some course
        components and share the benefits of the project with colleagues and students by using the technology
        available in each institution.
