Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The partnership of our four schools has chosen "Pupils for integration and inclusion in the spirit of European citizenship - UNITAS" as project title. From each school 15 pupils aged 14 to 16 years as well as two teachers will participate in each project. Because of the on-going refugee crisis in the EU and the ratification of the UN convention concerning the rights of disabled people integration and inclusion are/ have become current challenges in society that massively affect everyday life in school as well. Each of the partners has useable experienced this (phenomenon) himself at local institutions. Therefore, according to the goals mentioned below and in order to improve and put the European idea into practice within the meaning of a peaceful and unbiased cooperation and friendship among the nations, pupils and teachers should be given the opportunity to gain their own experiences with integration and inclusion in everyday life at school and in society, to present these to others and to broaden their horizons through mutual exchange and realizing concrete projects together so that they can use and apply the new-found experience to the benefit of both the school community and the school environment respectively. This immediate implementation as well as the knowledge resulting from it should/will be made accessible to the public and third parties/others – a flagship project for the solution of the European integration crisis which examples how solutions can be found and realized. This project explicitly aims at making all of its results accessible to a big part of the public in various ways. Potential participants with a decided interest are to be appropriately supported and advised in order to implement theoretical or practical contents achieved through us into their specific environment.
