We are about to start a KA2 project on European citizenship that involves six other countries. The aim of the project is to develop the so-called 4 C (communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking) of students on how to organize and run activities aiming at motivating and educating young people on being active citizen, and thus on stressing the importance of taking part in political, economic and social life by promoting European awareness and European identity, and all the values connected to active participation in the EU. The main methodology will be based on a varieties of social activities: gathering information through online research and carrying out various poll, taking part in different kind of games, indoor and outdoor, city quests, simulations, debates , etc. Educational programs need to be developed to improve competences like collaboration, and communication as well as working to increase creativity an critical ability in order to reduce prejudice, promote tolerance, empathy and openness to diversity.
