With the inspiration of Erasmus and with bright lighthouse the United Europe this program aims to highlight, common cultural elements of European countries. The aim is the cooperation of the target groups through the acquaintance of other cultures, not only understand the common cultural tradition, but also gain a stronger sense of identity both local and European. This will be succeeded mainly by experience and interaction through mutual actions and the school contact with society. Our methodology will be focused on the mutual work of all partners and the modern educational methods and strategies. The program will have both a theoretical and an experiential approach to develop students' knowledge and experience, and combine the field research and experiment. As soon as the project comes to an end, they will realize that they will have earned important qualifications required for their future academic and professional careers. Thus, they will acknowledge the importance of a school that gives them opportunities for socialization and their smooth integration into society. The participating countries are Greece as a supervisor, Italy, Bulgaria, Poland and Slovakia. They are all willing to be part of an effort to promote cultural tolerance and awareness.
On that concept we have organized four transnational meetings and five Learning/Teaching/Training Activities in order to meet, to make schedules to present our work and lecture about our basic themes such as:
1. “customs and traditions preserved through history and time” including “customs of the life circle (birth, baptism, engagement, wedding, burial)”
2. “traditional instruments, dances and costumes”
3. “Christmas and Easter in my country”
4. “customs and traditions that bond with agriculture Local and products”
5. “Folk Art and Architecture”
In conclusion, our project aims to create responsible citizens who respect other people and cultures are more open to the different and do not feel the other as a menace but as a means of enriching their personal development and maturation. Moreover, we aim them to complete culturally, identify their cultural unity yesterday and today and give an answer to the violence and xenophobia that is endemic in society. In addition, they will appreciate the importance of leaving in a clean environment as culture teaches us to give nature the respect that she reserves.
