STOP VIOLENCE AT SCHOOL BY ARTS, HANDICRAFTS AND SPORTS
Start date: Sep 1, 2014,
End date: Aug 31, 2016
Our project aimed to reduce violence and bullying in our schools by creating opportunities for social interaction and inter cultural dialogue among the young people from partner countries. On account of all these, the students were engaged in researching and collecting material to be exchanged&analyzed. The assertion of our own cultural identity in respect of each, is extremely important especially in era where the phenomena of globalization is leading our younger generations almost to forget about their past origins and to level cultures.
It is also very important to stress that the project activities were aimed at promoting and enhancing positive behaviors while preventing the negative ones. This is an age in which bullying and violence are becoming an increasingly urging problem, to be solved both at school and outside it. That’s why, at the heart of the project, there were the following fundamental points:
-The continuous evaluation of both the recovery of the cultural characteristics of each participant country through its traditional arts&the interference due to globalization
-The promotion of basic skills, ICT skills and foreign language skills
-The idea of the school as a place of excellence in constructively learning&participating in civic life
-In a way,voilence is affected by poverty and social exclusion so that our Project had a positive approach on this case
-The desire to collaborate with local®ional institutions.
-We gave big importance of prevention of early school leaving and increase of university students so we studied on the case by the teachers connecting with our project’s activities.
Activities aimed promoting and enhancing positive behaviors while preventing negative ones. We were aiming to involve about 900 pupils, some of whom have special needs, in our project.
Our project had four partners from four different countries.We included and impacted students, teachers, families, member of the associations, and other stakeholders.
Schools had common tasks , specific tasks in the project and different sub-topics for each project meeting. Coordinator school had one sub-topic but partner schools has two sub-topics. Every school worked on sub-topics beforehand in means of organising activities in the schools. The meetings were arranged an international athmosphere for the activites were to be done by participation of pupils and teachers.
