The project is carried out by two schools from Romania and Spain, on the basis of their common Latin origin and has as purpose identifying the common problems and overcoming social and economic barriers.
Our aims for this project are:
· To raise the students’ motivation by sustaining their interest in learning foreign languages other than English and French.
· To promote European citizenship and education for sustainable development and to contribute to a wider opening towards European values.
The aims respond to the fact that nowadays Europe is a society of multicultural diversity, which needs citizens who possess linguistic, social, teamwork abilities, who are well informed, active and open to commitments.
The planned activities for the project will enable students to develop their linguistic abilities in Romanian and Spanish languages, to become aware that sustainable development is part of their present and future, to acquire knowledge regarding the history, culture and traditions of the two countries, thus reducing xenophobia and discrimination to the minimum and promoting tolerance to other cultures, lifestyles, sets of values.
The project also aims at educating not only students, but the whole school’s staff in the environmental protection domain, rational usage of energetic resources and to involve them in voluntary actions in the community. As a result, the two schools will become known in the community, will gain prestige and will consolidate their European dimension in school education.
