The pupil exchange project between Danish and German pupils aimed at teaching the pupils lifelong sports participation, active lifestyles, health prevention and intercultural learning. Through joint sports activities and the exchange about sports cultures, the pupils were encouraged to do sports regularly and to live a healthy life. They learned German and English to communicate their needs for physical activity spaces. In addition, the project promoted democratic thinking and active participation by building sports facilities at both schools, in the planning of which the pupils were involved. The project facilitated intercultural exchange and strengthened long-term relationships between the pupils.
