As part of the first Open Forum topic, each of the representatives presented what has been done so far within the project and how many of the colleagues and students involved in the project. They also discussed the problems they encountered and the ways of solving and future successful achievement of the project goals. It was agreed that a common mailing list, both for teachers and students, should be developed for easier and more efficient communication. It has been suggested that everything should be concrete about engagement and interaction with students: how many lessons per year should be lectures, which topics and for what age of the student, and in which subjects (fair play ...), to address specific topics. It was also suggested that all relevant information for the preparation of the project report to the Agency be collected on time. Then, each of the four modules were discussed within the intellectual output 1 - making the curriculum for Ethics and its implementation and integration into the existing curricula of different subjects. In this part, most of the work was presented by Dr. Vojko Strahovnik from the Faculty of Theology of the University of Ljubljana.

The following was agreed:
