The OBJECTIVES of our project are: - forming a European citizenship which goes beyond nationality and has no frontiers; - to educate the students in order to raise a European consciousness through cultural and artistic activities; - to create opportunities for students who are socially, culturally, economically disadvantaged (included migrants) to raise their self esteem through integrating them into school and community life, with an emphasis on developing their creative and imaginative input; - to raise awareness, learn about, understand and respect the traditions and customs that exist in different countries; - to share good practices and methodologies amongst partner schools by exchanging information and teaching methods; - to enrich our students' understanding of the wider world through a precise study of the European cultural values. Our objectives will be to add a European dimension to learning in the participating schools and a wider knowledge about different cultures and languages. There are of course several levels of cultural awareness which reflect how students grow to perceive cultural differences, and our purpose is to encourage our them to cultivate tolerance, interest and respect towards other cultures. The activities we propose will guide our students to be curious about the world around them and to make them responsible members of society. As regarding the informational exchange among teachers, a good working environment will be created in order to share our experiences, good practices and teaching methods.
