This is a website of the project “Developing tolerance and mutual understanding”. You  can find here information about our work and accomplishments. The project involves 5 schools from 5 European countries: Poland, Italy, Bulgaria, Turkey and Romania.  The students and teachers from these countries are going to tackle the issues of violence, aggression, intolerance, racism, ethnic discrimination – tendencies which are more and more common in Europe these days.

On this website we would like to inform you who we are and what kind of activities we organize at our schools. Also, we will provide you with information on our mobilities. Please read our blog,  watch the photos while we are getting to know each other and becoming friends. You can check your knowledge about  the participating countries  by taking the questionnaires  about our culture and customs!  Also,  if you want to check if you are a tolerant person, take a test Are you tolerant?

We are going to add more and more information as the project goes on.  Please follow our activiities and  enjoy this wonderful experience with us ☺!

Description of the Project

 

 The project “Developing tolerance and mutual understanding” involves 5 schools from 5 European countries: Poland, Italy, Bulgaria, Turkey and Romania.. Violence, aggression, intolerance, racism, ethnic discrimination are tendencies that can be observed in the behavior of the students from all the partner countries.The World Values Survey shows that Poland, Turkey and Italy are the least racially tolerant countries, while Bulgaria and Romania seem to be the most tolerant countries. This result along with the diverse educational and cultural background of the partners will facilitate the implementation of a successful project.

Approximately 2700 students and 120 teachers/adults will indirectly be involved in the project. Other participants who will enjoy the benefits offered by this Erasmus+ project are the administrative staff, students’ families, pedagogical staff, educational advisors, policy makers and representatives of the local authorities.

The tangible products of the project are an audio dictionary, photography exhibition, calendar of the project, common movie, e-book, flashcards, thematic puzzles, handmade bookmarks, project webpages, project logo, flyers, DVD of the project, brochure.

 

 

 Project objectives

Project objectives

The project objectives are:

 

The project objectives are:

-to develop civic competences and increase self-esteem of students from 5 EU schools

-to facilitate understanding the concepts “tolerance” and “mutual understanding” at a personal level and in the European context

-to equip participants with practical examples for acting as civic-minded citizens

-to raise awareness about diversity and cultural identities promoting social cohesion

-to boost the feeling of belonging to the EU community

To reach the project objectives an innovative approach will be used. Combining the advantages of using ICT in education with the Five Factor Model theory will tackle the 5 personality dimensions:

-openness to experience: students will be encouraged to express their emotions and ideas using Art. They will create together the movie “Tolerance through my eyes”, scenarios for the Forum theater, digital photos, will prepare artistic moments for the Festival of tolerance and mutual understanding.

-extraversion: team building activities, sports competitions and board games are going to stimulate students’ assertiveness, sociability and personality.

-agreeableness: working in international teams and creating products together will develop students’ cooperation skills. The tangible products they will create together are flashcards about the topic, the dictionary of the project, handmade bookmarks and thematic puzzles.

-neuroticism: students will experience (un)pleasant emotions, anger, depression, anxiety and vulnerability during the Forum theater/ theater activity. They will become aware of how intolerance is perceived by others, develop empathy and they will see how important is to be an active citizen.

- conscientiousness- tendency to control impulses and act in socially acceptable ways, behaviors that facilitate goal-directed behavior . Conscientious people excel in their ability to delay gratification, work within the rules, and plan and organize effectively.
