Each delegation (4 pupils) makes a general assessment on the city they have chosen (food, transportation, environment...) in a foreign language and gives their description of an ideal city. Each conference may be followed by a summary in French and two or three questions by the audience.

Place: Centre St Louis des Français, Rome

Date: Late December/early January

Languages: English, Italian, German, Spanish, Arabic (French, as mediation)
