Objectives and Innovative Aspects

Today's societies place great importance on the young people education. This project is expected to allow students to get the maximum development of intellectual, cultural and emotional needs on an individual and social level.
Europe is an example of tolerance, coexistence, and multi-ethnic richness. So the partnership activities will enable students to learn about each others cultures and customs. Both students and teachers involved in this project will be more motivated to learn other languages if they establish contact with native citizens.
Proposed activities will also promote communication, education in human values, development of imagination and creativity. Participants in this project will recognize and appreciate diverse social and ethnic groups and cultural characteristics, evaluating the differences and similarities with other groups and the need to respect human rights. Another result of this European collaboration is the ability to compare different methods of teaching of our educational systems and get a broader perspective breaking stereotypes in thinking and overcoming prejudices
