European Project: Value and Attitudes Education For Inclusive Europe

Using Education for Values and Attitudes (EVA) to encourage progressive attitudes toward society, active citizenship, and human solidarity.

This three-year project develops a new education programme called EVA – Education for Values and Attitudes – and an EVA educational platform vaeie.eu.  The EVA educational programme will contain a toolkit and media content, that primary and secondary school teachers can access in order to work with students to raise awareness of the European Union goals and history and to cultivate European values of democracy, human rights, gender equality, and the rule of law.

The project uses Education for Values and Attitudes (EVA) to encourage progressive attitudes toward society, active citizenship, and human solidarity. The project supports an  inclusive education and society and promotes the peaceful co-existence and integration of diverse groups in Europe, including religious and ethnic minority communities, migrant workers, and refugees fleeing from war, overcoming issues that can promote far right exremisim and anti-European attitudes.

The project outputs are (1) an EVIA online Platform – eva.eu hosted in Belgium (2) a Training kit made up of module one (European Values), module two (Media Tech Guide) and Module Three (Methodology Guide) (3) a Toolkit made up of six EVIA lesson plans with media integrated lessons and (4) a Teacher’s Community with guides. A range of communication and dissemination activities will be carried out across Europe to foster social inclusion and integration through enhanced values and attitudes education at a European level and to strengthen the teaching profession through the provision of open resources, training and cooperation activities, fostering European integration and raising awareness about European Values and Attitudes Education.

The project is supported by Erasmus+ and the seven partners are UCLL, Limburg, Belgium (lead partner); Smashing Times, Dublin, Ireland; Music Department of Giessen University, Giessen, Germany; EURINNET NGO, Rome, Italy; History County Museum, Botoșani, Romania; AIGB (Associatia Institutul Geogebra Botosani), Botosani,Romania and PEKSA, Zonguldak, Turkey.
