Summary of Project Idea
The Friendship Tour was an internet based concept which was made to create a friendly relationship between the countries within the EU and the prospective EU countries. One school class from each of the 28 countries was responsible for the publication of The Friendship Tour Journal. They were divided into seven groups with four countries in each. The groups were responsible for producing the newspaper on a given subject, including text and pictures. Each group edited 4 editions and published a new newspaper every seventh week. The first edition was published during the Netd@ys Europe 20–27 november 2000.
A supplement , The Bright Flight Quiz, was included in each edition of The Friendship Tour. A quiz consisted of multiple choice questions. The questions were formulated and illustrated by 7 classes in each edition, and the prizes were music cd's produced in the participating countries.
