We want to reach the following objectives:

  • to be able to recognize and reject negativity, rejection, prejudice and hatred in school (either in speech or actions)
  • to develop sensitivity and awareness of own attitudes through reflection
  • to develop social awareness for minorities (immigrants, students with special learning abilities, specific ethnic groups)
  • to be able to break stereotypes and apply sound judgement
  • to become aware of the negative impact of undemocratic behavior and bias
  • to understand how people are influenced towards adopting certain beliefs and attitudes and why this is wrong
  • to encourage pupils to stand up for human rights against racism and prejudice
  • to work with other governmental institutions towards the same target.

The proposed results at the level of the students:

  • to familiarize themselves with the ethics of the EU and adopt a democratic behavior
  • to join groups and be active towards this target
  • to develop respect and understanding of multicultural characteristics
  • to be able to communicate better–breaking communication barriers (as prejudice)
  • to know and understand the negative effects of bias and racism in order to avoid them
  • to further develop through the activities the linguistic tools (English, computers / communication / Internet) people skills / team working skills
  • to develop cognitive skills, thinking, analyzing and structuring their thoughts into expressing solid ideas

The teachers:

  • will be able to recognize events at birth and change route by supporting students into slowly changing attitudes and becoming more democratic
  • will gain knowledge on this effect and its extensions into family, society, schools
  • will be able to collaborate with other teachers in order to compare methods

The schools:

  • improvement of the management, the teaching practices and the quality of staff training
  • the cooperation with local NGOs which will transit in long-term effects to be better
