The aim of the project is to help students to develop civic competence and the understanding of what it means to be a citizen in a democratic European society.

We believe that young people need to develop civic competence and to know how democracy influences their daily live. They also need to know what it means to be well informed and know about their rights and duties in this society.

Civic competence starts by teaching the students their rights and responsibilities for themselves and for all the people around them (respect, tolerance, prevent prejudices, equality). In order to achieve this we intend to

  • Raise the students' awareness of democracy and civics through intercultural dialogue.
  • Have the students share their history and customs in regard to democracy in their own countries.
  • Raise the students' awareness of trans-national and cross European shared history of democracy.
  • Have the students get a better understanding of the fact thatthere are always two sides to an argument.
  • Have the students share share their viewpoints of the current events and controversial issues.

The expected outcome of the project is the students' and teachers' understanding of what it means to be well informed and an active citizen in an integrated unified Europe.

By awakening understanding of each other's history and how democracy influences their daily live, we hope to help the students to be active and informed citizens in a modern European society.
