Traditionally, EDIC Karlovac is the coordinator for the exchange of Christmas decorations. In cooperation with primary schools, with the aim of educating young people about other EU countries through creative and fun activities, participation in the project "European Christmas Tree Decoration Exchange", organizes exchanges with other primary school students from EU countries.
The aim of the project is for students from participating schools from all EU countries to make Christmas decorations to present themselves, their region, their history and culture, and to share all this with other schools from the group assigned to them. By making Christmas decorations, students discover more about their culture and tradition. Through materials from all over Europe, they will learn about Christmas in other countries and about many other aspects of each country, such as language, history and culture, as well as an understanding of what it means to be a citizen of Europe.
This year, four primary schools from Karlovac County participated in the project; - Banija Elementary School, Grabrik Elementary School, Dubovac Elementary School and Dragojla Jarnević Elementary School. All schools received decorations adorning the Christmas trees.
