Pupils learn about European Union's fundamental values: respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law. They learn that these values unite all the member states and that a country, that does not recognize these values, cannot belong to the Union.

They understand and respect the fact that life in Europe is culturally diverse and that different people bring different values to the European community thus making it stronger.
