The great cross-cultural school projects which try to involve teachers, parents and pupils frequently present a strong resistance to innovation.

The cultural framework is established by means of searching for shared human symbols, centred on the teachers' relevant capabilities. All of this together with their concerns about the multicultural reality in their school, we describe the basis of a procedure called "The Trojan Mouse". This strategy aims at putting into practice small but effective collaborative projects in multi-cultural environments.

In a few sessions of work, we explain not only the theoretical principles but also some practical advices of how to elaborate a complete collaborative project.

We include a guided protocol, with its different stages: firstly. an analysis of real situation of the school; secondly, the description of the different concerns and the solutions suggested; finally, the project is completed under the rules of the "Trojan Mouse".
