The project “Diabetes in school – pupils for pupils” gives pupils and class communities insight into living with diabetes, creates awareness of the condition and makes everyday school life easier for young people with diabetes. A short film, “Pupils for Pupils”, shows how young people live with diabetes. The focus is on classmates, teachers and friends – the entire school community. Understanding each other makes living together easier and better. And who better to explain to students and teachers what it means to live with and manage diabetes than those who do it daily? We want to give them a few tips on how they can make life easier for classmates with diabetes because school is challenging enough, even without a chronic condition!
