Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project is a strategic partnership between Dacia Technological High Scool from Pitesti, 11Geniko Lykeio Thessalonikis, Istituto Istruzione Superiore Castelnovo ne Monti, Merkez Çanakkale Anadolu Lisesi, Lycée général et technique Henri Vincenot and Bromma Gymnasium. The contemporary society deals both with the desire for unity and the confusion regarding the ways to achieve unity in diversity. Even since the tenth century there has been a tendency for dialogue but at the same time we have been witnessing conflicts for the preservation of national identity, belief and culture. In the context of a secularised society, marked by multiculturalism and multi religiosity and according to the European Strategy for 2020, to limit marginalization and social exclusion, we find this project to be opportune as it aims to prevent and combat discriminatory attitudes and behaviors. Our project objectives are: to increase with 15% the number of students with a high level of tolerance, by the end of the school year 2016-2017; to increase with 25%, by the end of the school year 2016-2017, the number of students who have knowledge regarding the the great European religions; to increase, by the end of the school year 2016-2017, the number of students who are comfortable in expressing their faith, with 20%; to decrease with 25% , by the end of the school year, the number of students who have no role model of morality, through the diversification of the educational context so that we will ensure the intellectual, emotional and social growth of students and teachers. This project implies 6 transnational reunions and 2 pre/post meetings, with the direct participation of 180 students, the total number of the indirect beneficiaries being of 2668, according to the management plan which contains: making short-movies and power points, workshops, competitions, debates, role playing and exhibits.
