Erasmus+ is the European Union Programe for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020.
Cooperation for innovation and exchange of best practices is key action Erasmus +2. This action supports transnational strategic partnerships that promote innovation, exchange of experience and know-how between institutions involved in education.
National College Gheorghe Lazar from Sibiu proposed for funding two strategic partnerships in April 2014 and in September 2014 obtained grants for the development of the two projects. Project Young Voices in the European Democracies is one of them. It will run over 2 academic years and is open to students of our high school College.
The main objective of this Erasmus project is to make students understand how democracy works on different levels in society and what has been the Democratic history in our countries. Students will researcher, discover about the history, institutions and democratic process and learn to appreciate differences. To take intercultural competences. Enable them to take an active part in decision-making; to make them realize that they can make differences to the future society and that their opinions are important. The overall goal is to support the development of a generation of young people who feel that they are vital and integrated members of not only their own countries but also of the European Union and the rest of the world.
