United in Diversity

The “Your Story is my Value, United in Diversity” project is a KA2 Strategic Partnership for School Education Exchange of Good Practices activity. The project is led in the Czech Rep with partners from Romania, the UK and Portugal.

Eurobarometer surveys highlight a remarkably low level of knowledge of the Union. According to a 2011 survey, a relative majority feel they are not well informed about the European Union. The European and national authorities in education gave schools the topics and steer, but teachers lack knowledge in teaching method and tools related to the European themes. We aim to address this.

Due to Covid-19 and the ongoing lockdown measures across Europe, dissemination activities for the United in Diversity project have unfortunately been limited to virtual engagement. The transnational exchange activities that were due to take place were cancelled but we will be rearranging these as soon as it is safe to do so – hopefully in the not-too-distant future!

The European project team has continued to meet and have initiated plans to collect school resources to build a library of activities for school staff and teachers. This resource library will include teaching methods and tools related to the European themes and we would like to extend our thanks to Aston University Engineering Academy for their initial support on this.
