About the project

Project logo

PEACE Project is a partnership between 6 European countries. This project started from the general idea that we have to find similarities and differences witch make us unique and, at the same time, important citizens of the European Community, beside the geographical borders, language, culture and traditions. Our students will be tomorrow European active citizens, and need to know how to prepare their future.
Pupils and their teachers will have the opportunity to present and to share their own values, traditions and beliefs and to know some new ones, thus enriching their cultural knowledge and gaining new experiences. By participating of students and teachers in the school and community life of the partner countries, as well as in their family life, will generate a new set of behavior values, civic attitudes, will materialize the notion of European citizenship, will facilitate the increase of their interest in studying foreign languages, in using ITC technology. The involvement of some students and teachers from different regions of Europe will eliminate any kind of prejudices (age, sex, religion, etc.), and cooperation, communication, teamwork and collaboration will be encouraged.

Specific objectives of the partnership:

  • to promote the respect for other languages, cultures, nationalities and the multicultural exchange between students and their parents, or teachers from partner schools, using the events as a purpose to do this

  • to discover new countries/ cultures and share what is specific to each one by the mean of the events

  • to strengthen language and computer skills acquired during the school period

  • to increase their motivation for foreign  language learning and use of ICT, including non-formal / informal context
