72 years after adopting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the rights of the weaker ones are still being violated. Instead of a peaceful and safe life for all human beings, the lack of democratic values is leading millions of people to be bullied, discriminated, mistreated, excluded, imprisoned and killed based on prejudice and stereotypes. There is a need to take action towards the violation of human rights and promote a spirit of democracy, active citizenship and social entrepreneurship in our schools and communities.

    There will be 4 mainstream schools and a special needs school. The target groups will be mostly secondary students, in cooperation with vocational students. However, all levels, including pre-school and primary children will participate in project activites, in cooperation with older students. There will be a special focus on students with poor school performance and in risk of failure and students with integration difficulties and disabilities (deaf and hard of hearing).



    A short-term joint staff training event at the beginning will provide teachers with necessary methods and tools for project implementation. Pupils from different levels and subjects will work on project topics related to Democracy and Human Rights. Acivities will be carried out by means of online communication (eTwinning) and also in five short-term exchanges of pupils, during which participants will work cooperatively in mixed groups. There will be follow-up activities for dissemination and exploitation of project results. At the end of the project students will present project results at the European Parliament as well as their ideas to prevent Human Rights’ violation.



    A whole-school and cross-sectorial approach will involve learners from pre-school to secondary level, including vocational courses. Associated partner in the community will also be involved. Project activities will be developed by means of student-centered methodologies like Content and Languge Integrated Learning (CLIL), Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Computer Sciences (CS) by means of Coding and Robotics and also the Montessori Method. The interaction of these methodologies will be the best way for pupils to learn by doing. They will work in teams (mixed healthy and disabled) using their creativity, critical thinking and accountability, this way deepening their linguistic, social, cooperative and civic competence. Active involvement of pupils in practical exercises of Democracy and organisation of activities will promote their entrepreneurial and citizenship skills as well as their autonomy and empathy.

    This project will have highly relevant impact due to its whole-school and cross-sectorial approach, which will involve pupils from different levels, mainstream and vocational courses and also a school for Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Teachers from different subjects and associated partners in the community will be part of it. This mixture of active stakeholders will lead to results which will have a multiplying effect and go far beyond participants and participating organizations, having an impact at local, regional, European and international level.




    The big exploitation potential of project results after the end of the EU funding will continue to enhance students’ development of different skills, and main project objectives will continue to be achieved. Project results will be integrated in schools’ activites guaranteeing its transferability and sustainability. All results will be available to the public at international level having a long-lasting effect of transferability and sustainability long after the project. This positive impact will have long-term benefits at international level, leading to more cohesive schools and societies.
