This is a global project divided into six related main topics: Health and Sports; Cultural Heritage; Languages and Mentalities; E-Citizenship; Sustainable Green Cities (environmental issues); Tolerance.
By improving working methods, exchanging methodologies and sharing good practices this partnership aims to change the risky behaviour of youngsters in their daily lifestyle (bad eating habits, sedentary life, addictions); wrong attitude against people of different race, sexual inclination or different cultures; indifference and low integration towards youth with disability and indifference about essential and priority environmental issues.
Two types of learning, teaching and training activities are included in the project: short-term joint staff training events where teachers have training courses concerning the project theme and also study visits combining on-site visits to relevant organisations, discussion workshops and short-term exchanges of groups of pupils that will give students the opportunity to experience international learning, reinforce their understanding of the diversity of European cultures and languages, develop new skills and competences necessary for their personal development and deepen each topic with special activities.
- Our global objective is as defined in Europe for Citizens programme 2014-20 “to improve people’s understanding of the EU, its history and diversity, to develop awareness of the rights granted by European citizenship, and to increase democratic participation at EU level”.
- The specific goals are to share experiences and to adapt learning programmes and teaching strategies in the participating schools considering sport practice, outdoor physical activities, healthy lifestyle education, cultural heritage values preservation, increase of environmental awareness, development of different languages, and change of mentalities, all through inclusion and integration.
- We intend to improve the way of looking at diversity as a chance to improve themselves and others, discuss how different countries cope with social inclusion and equal opportunities, fostering integration and equal rights.
- The project will be carried out transnationally to allow schools to reflect and work together on the topics, exchange and share good practices, develop ICT and foreign languages competences, find solutions to common problems, define shared working methods to be used permanently in the future and spread out to other schools, find the best DEOR activities to increase the impact of the project.
- Participants will be taught the importance of tolerance and non-discrimination, overcoming all forms of discrimination, and developing the feeling of belonging to one European community.
