Vom 8. 4. – 13.4. 2019 fand in Konstanz ein EU Projekttreffen statt. Inhaltlich wurde an interkulturellen Themen gearbeitet. Die Teilnehmer verglichen Vorurteile, die über Deutschland, Österreich, Italien, Tschechien und Polen existieren und statistisch überprüft. Die Schüler erarbeiteten Befragungen und werteten sie mit Hilfe von EXCEL aus.
Da das Programm das Welterbe und das kulturelle Verständnis behandelt wurde ein Stadtrundgang und eine Führung beim Fastnachtsverein zum immateriellen Erbe durchgeführt. Als UNESCO Welterbestätte wurden die neolithischen Pfahlbauten in Unterhuldingen besucht. Als barocke Sehenswürdigkeiten konnten die Teilnehmer die Blumeninsel Mainau und das Schloss Meersburg besuchen. Beeindruckend bezüglich Demokratieerziehung war eine Simulation einer Stadtratssitzung in Konstanz mit Vertretern der Stadtregierung.
