The main aims of this project are improving the ability of school teachers to explain the EU at school. There will be organized different forms of training course. The first training phase will be a two days Seminar training course (in Italian language and English) addressed to 40 teachers selected to national scale. During this course the Professors of the University of Bologna and from European and International University network will give to school teachers the basis of the European integration and the members of Europe Direct will focus on the internet European opportunities. It will be also a place in which the teachers of the school can know each other, exchange experience and information.

The training will continue “at home” through a 4 Months virtual class in which the e-learning will be the “tool to know”.  This training course will be open assuring the major participation to all national and international teachers. During this period the EU will be presented through thematic in-depth analysis. Thanks to a creation of website and the creation of a network of teachers interested in EU issues and the e-book, which will be a modern and innovative didactic support to teach the EU,  the content and didactic material will be spread all over the European schools.

The creation of an European teachers Platform for exchanging and introducing new pedagogical content and didactic material will be one of the innovative features of the project. The “Growing European Community” will be also presented during the final phase of the International Conference as an in evolution output.

In meanwhile the European issues will enter in school also through meetings organised to explain the history of European integration and how the EU works, but they will also deal with specific topics such as the EU environmental policy, mobility opportunities, promotion of human rights and gender equality, globalisation and new challenges.
