FESTECH: FuturEU students as Transmitters of Cultural Heritage
A project funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. 2018-2021 Coordinator country: Cyprus (Terra Santa College) Partner-countries: Lithuania, Greece, Romania
It is an idea that goes back to the time of Ancient Greece, where Aristotle in “Politics” claims that a citizen is not a citizen only because he lives in a certain place, but a citizen is one who is involved in public affairs, contributes to the implementation of national policies, wants to help a neighbour, share and transmit abroad local cultural heritage in order to raise awareness, inspire others and develop new international partnerships for the common good.
D.E.M.O.S - Democratic thinking in Education as a Medium to Overturn prejudices and Stereotypes
A project funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. 2021-2023 Coordinator country: Cyprus (Terra Santa College) Partner-countries: Belgium, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Portugal
This idea will act as a vivid reaction to today’s challenges of great linguistic, cultural, educational, economic &technological diversity in the school community at local & EU level. The study of the principles of Democracy linked to toleration, inclusion & empathy as agents for positive developmental understanding will give wider dimension to the EU concepts of active citizenship ,civic engagement, social responsibility &respect for heterogeneity. The cultivation of democratic thinking in students as a learning living attitude by means of cooperative interaction & sharing of ideas is in accordance with the project’s strategic goal to raise a future generation with profound democratic values.
