My Equal World With European Values
PROJECT: Mobility of Pupils
TARGET GROUP: Secondary & Upper Secondary School Students
Alongside with the different subjects, all teachers have the duty to instill their students, values and positive attitudes towards life and society. Education for values and attitudes is crucially beneficial for society and individual as well, standing at the base of any national education system, including those in EU countries and candidates. EU is based on the European values: respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality, and the rule of law. But have we all the same European values, as we claim, and are committed to respect them? Is it possible that people belonging to different nations or cultures to interpret these values in different ways? Is there a way to ensure that in Europe we all respect the same values and understand them in the same way? We believe that the answer is in education and imply a transnational collaboration at European level. There are 5.7M teachers in EU countries only, and they could have a huge impact on values integration, but only if they could easy collaborate each other on this matter.
For all these reasons, we designed this Mobility of Pupils to create a European community of teachers and students who take care of values and attitudes and it’s a great opportunity to combine classroom activities with discussion about the core values that enable us to live together in society with students and teachers all around Europe!
At the end of the program, the students will be able to;
- Students able to define the definitions: ‘human dignity “European Values” and “Fundamental human rights”
