New Erasmus+ School Project on Peace and Democracy – Kick off in Ireland

We just met our partners from Italy, Turkey, Greece and France for the first meeting of the Erasmus+ school project on peace and democracy in Ireland!

About the project

Building and supporting sustainable peace, social justice and democracy among young” is a KA210 school project educating secondary school students in humanitarian values through art, sports and social sciences. Thanks to the mobilities, they will be equipped with competences in peacebuilding and conflict prevention.

About the meeting

The meeting kicked off with the partners introductions and the outline of the project’s objectives and expected results.

We then scheduled all the project international mobilities for this and next year. These will involve 2 teachers travelling to Italy in March and Greece in October. Next year, they will be travellling to France in January 2025 and Turkey in April 2025.

We moved on establishing clear responsibilities among partners and discussed the mobility activities, the evaluation process and the project budget.

The meeting ended with an insightful workshop on the etwinning platform that we will be using during the project.

While in Dublin, partners also took part in some cultural activities in the city centre. We took them on a walking tour, passing by the main city landmarks and ending at the iconic Guinness Storehouse.
