E.U. AND ME
A NEW "EUROPEAN DIMENSION OF EDUCATION"
Europe, as a joint project, is facing one of the most severe challenges in its recent history. Building a sense of belonging among EU citizens undoubtedly involves deepening the development of initiatives and the widespread incorporation of European themes into school curricula.
The experience of various daily lives in European countries, while also recognizing local and regional identities, as well as the friendly relationships that European exchanges and projects create, contribute decisively to the knowledge and appreciation of the multiple identities, institutions and lifestyles of European citizens, while reinforcing their sense of belonging and identity at regional, national, European and universal levels.
If at the outset the concept of the European dimension was centered on the knowledge that students and teachers should have about the Member States, today it means not only that knowledge, but the exercise of active European citizenship by informing learners of the need to be prepared to face the challenges of the global world, taking advantage of what EU has to offer, acquiring capabilities and developing skills that are appropriate to the demands on the labour market as well.
In the context of the New European Dimension of Education, the aim of the course is to raise awareness among teachers and, by means of dissemination, schools, in order to provide children and young people with the learning of themes of European construction and identity. This course settles within a framework of global citizenship advancement, alongside the development of attitudes and values that will lead to the expansion of participants’ awareness about Europe's richness and cultural diversity. The overall aim must be to strengthen the sense of European identity in young generations and teach them the advantages and challenges of European citizenship.
