When Europe is confronted with a wave of socioeconomic crisis, populist, extremists, and a general lack of trust in democratic processes, the educational world can help counter these threats. Project partners are convinced that without the active participation of the school system, promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance, and non-discrimination will be inefficient and ineffective. Schools educate future EU citizens from an early age and can be the most effective means of spreading such values.
The results will assist teachers in incorporating the EU and its values into their lessons, as well as introducing EU citizenship education in the school, either as a single or cross-curricular subject.
Moreover, will assist students in becoming more connected with and aware of the EU, and will assist schools in becoming inclusive environments, as they will be based on a European culture that is supported and integrated by EU citizenship education.
Being an EU citizen entails being open to other cultures and differences, and we want to promote all of these values throughout our project activities.
The project's goals are to train teachers on EU-related topics and to assist them in developing methodologies and strategies for incorporating EU citizenship education into their subjects.
Motivate students to become active citizens and raise students' awareness of the EU context, rights, and shared values. Support schools in increasing civic participation and engagement, as well as young students' participation in democratic life.
Make the school a key driver in increasing EU citizenship. Developing social and intercultural competencies, as well as critical thinking skills, through activities that support the development of educational environments.
