Given that Europe is facing the greatest refugee crisis since the World War II (about 1 million refugees and migrants arrived in the EU in 2015 and Europol estimates 27% of these are children), the future school population of the EU will be increasingly characterized by multiple cultures and values. The aim of the project was to foster social integration of people with disadvantaged backgrounds, to promote intercultural dialogue, democratic values and fundamental rights, non-discrimination and active citizenship, critical thinking and media literacy.
It was implemented from 01-09-2016 until 31-08-2018 in Greece, Italy, Spain, Turkey and Austria. The Coordinator of the project was Öffentliches Stiftsgymnasium der Benediktiner zu St. Paul (based in Austria) and the consortium was consisted of Liceo Scientifico Statale Filippo Silvestri, 4th High school of Ilion, Istanbul Lisesi and IES Joaquin Turina. The target participants were upper secondary school pupils in the ages 15–18. Working groups of approx. 16 pupils were formed in each respective school. Every 8th (alternating) pupil took part in transnational learning activities and acted as disseminators for their working group and school community. It was a two-year Erasmus+ project granted by the European Commission.
