Start date: 01 Sep 2016, End date: 28 Feb 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project ‘IDEA’ aims by utilizing modern pedagogical underpinnings, to illuminate the notion of common roots shaping Europeans, cultivate sense of belonging, foster knowledge and awareness of how EU policies positively impact our daily lives. The tool through which this aim will be met is our common ancestral Indo-European language. ‘IDEA’ addresses a well-documented and worrisome situation: euroscepticism, loss of trust in the EU, lack of information on the benefits of EU and a weakening of active citizenship. Bringing in innovative pedagogical strategies such as game-based learning, will address the void in an innovative manner. We aim with the IDEA teaching tool to reveal in a familiar and playful manner how EU participation has made everyday life better for all.• Online Youth Survey, uploaded in the Facebook page of the most popular TV music channel in Greece, MAD TV.• Development of the teaching tool ‘IDEA’ – an open-source European word database sharing common roots and meanings, all part of the Indo-European ancestor language. Each word will be linked and explained within the European context. A Scholar's Committee with distinguished experts (in language studies and european policies) contribute by selecting suitable words. • Taping of TV Game show with students, hosted by a popular TV personality followed by a discussion illuminating further on words, meaning, evolution, related benefits in terms of EU policies.• Organization of multiplier events in three cities attended by relevant stakeholders. • Policy-Making Recommendations IDEA will be coordinated by DIKTIO-Network for Reform in Greece and Europe, a thinktank of European orientation founded by frm Commissioner and Minister of Education A. Diamantopoulou. It has the intellectual and organizational capacity, experience and expertise, stature and dedicated supporters to implement such a multi-dimensional project and ensure its success and sustainability.
