The main goal of this project is to respond to recent modern world needs—building adequate skills in our students to help in their successful adaptation and realization and raising students’ awareness of being active European citizens through the help of creative learning and creative teaching.
Six European schools will participate in the project, united around the idea that drama can be the shortest route to shaping young Europeans' future — raising their creativity, awareness, responsibilities and building an active attitude toward world problems. […] This project will contribute to promoting equality, social cohesion, active citizenship, and enhancing creativity and innovation in European education.
Students will participate in 21 theatrical performances, one concert, three competitions for the creation of a project logo, an original song-anthem of friendship between young people in the EU, and the creation of an original play related to bullying at school. The students will show their talent through writing plays, songs, creating booklets, trailers and posters for the plays and through participating in theatrical performances and flash mobs.
With the project we want to open a window to different cultures, languages, people, and cultivate students' European identity. The students will translate national comedies in English and perform them on stage. A friendship dictionary with basic words in 7 languages- English, Bulgarian, Spanish, Italian, German, Polish and Greek will be created by an international team. An e-book with all project plays will be published on the project's website and the eTwinning platform.
Furthermore, we want to establish with students the concept of social responsibility. Students from all partner schools will create 6 plays related to the UN Global Goals and perform them on stage in international teams. Students will practice active citizenship in action through six flash mobs which will spread the word about the UN Global Goals in all partner towns.
Conclusion We believe that Drama can be the shortest way to shape young Europeans' future .
