Authors and directors with a cause: inspiring young europeans today ?
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The "Authors and directors with a cause " project aims at promoting a better understanding of the environmental, social and cultural issues we all face nowadays by means of literature and cinema. Students will use a series of interactive and creative methods in order to produce research materials and their own creations: reading, studying, conducting research and analysis, meeting writers and film directors, writing their own short stories and directing their own films etc. 7 schools from 7 countries, with very different social, historical and cultural backgrounds joined this project to acknowledge common european values and issues that will have to be dealt with by students in the next years as the fully concerned citizens we hope they will turn to be thanks to this project. Therefore, by strong collaboration and team work with students from other European countries, by meetings and interviewing famous and representative European writers and film directors , all the students taking part in this project will promote intercultural awareness and they will encourage using books and films as a means of better knowing ourselves, our ancestors, the society we live in and the European peoples we share the same goals and territory with. Moreover, as far as teachers' benefits are concerned, by taking part in these project activities (joint research, surveys and studies, peer learning activities, workshops. ), they will improve their teaching techniques and adapt them to society nowadays, to its needs and requirements. They will develop creative, innovative methods of teaching based on students' needs for motivation and active participation during classes and extra-curricular activities. Teachers will use the dissemination activities in order to share their newly acquired information, experience and examples of good practice to the entire European and Erasmus + community by means of eTwinning platform and other activities carried out at local, regional, national and international level ( attending conferences, exhibitions, meetings, seminars, joint staff training events, carrying out teaching and training assignments. etc. ) Therefore, this project will certify the skills and competences acquired during the implementation of this partnership and will help them not only develop professionally and personally but also bring their contribution to creating a modern European educational system.
