Our project intends to explore not only European, but universal problems in our society. We want to develop positive social skills, reciprocal respect and a friendly school climate. It will be achieved through TRANSNATIONAL cooperation among schools of several European countries, sharing experiences and good practices. We want to develop the ability to manage conflicts, to promote effective interpersonal communication among students and between students and teachers, promoting the understanding and sharing of social rules.
The project involves not only teachers and learners but also parents, making them more responsible and conscious of the implications of their actions.
