Project

This project is directed to promoting young people's awareness of the values of the common heritage of European citizens since ancient Greek and Roman times. With the design of this project, young European citizens are given opportunities to explore Europe's long-term history, the development leading from these political and social entities leading to basic cultural achievements, which have led to the current political body called Europe. Further cultural influences that have made an impact on the current European situation since the fall of the Roman Empire will also be considered, as it has greatly contributed to Europe's diversity and thus its broad heritage.
Given the educational requirements in the member countries of the EU, the age of 12 to 15 seems to be the main target group to promote the awareness of our cultural achievements and to help build a common ground to live together in mutual understanding, tolerance, and support. This way, young people can develop a growing sense of fundamental values that are necessary in a world with growing complexity with more opportunities, but also more threats and risks than ever before.
The number of active participants at each partner school depends on the organisational framework in which the project is being carried out. The base will be formed as a group of pupils and teachers actively designing and running the project and forming a link to the curricular classes within the partner schools. This way, a spin-off effect of the project activities is intended. The size of these active groups will range from two to six teachers and 10 to 25 pupils from grades six to ten, according to experiences from previous Comenius and Erasmus projects.
The project is divided into five phases with different thematic priorities. The national teams will exchange their findings on the project's digital platforms while working on these and present and discuss the results during the learning, teaching, and training meetings. Four activities at a national level will be accompanied by one activity at Brussels, providing a unique opportunity to gain hands- on experience in a governing European body.
The project activities will be monitored and evaluated by pupils and teachers at the end of each project stage and published in the project's platforms.
The project results are expected to contribute to regular school curricula in terms of a practice- oriented, hands-on approach to European culture, history, economics, and politics. Using a foreign language will also be an integral part of overcoming lingual, cultural, and social borders, thus contributing to a greater sense of internationalism and awareness of common grounds and diversity among young European citizens. With our final product we hope to achieve a compendium of all aspects of an augmented awareness of and commitment for a European citizenship.
