    European Teenagers beyond the Economic Crisis.

    The Economic crisis lasting since 2008 has affected everybody's life in Europe in many different ways. But the crisis has also offered the possibility for Europe and European citizens to get closer by facing problems together. This Project focuses on the present economic situation, with the aim to inform our teenage students, prepare and encourage them throughout the hardships of our time. We want our students to understand the reasons why the crisis has started, be aware of the differences between the participating countries in handling the crisis, explore what EU institutions and programmes offer at present and in the future, so that they are fully informed about the opportunities they may seize. Finally, we want students from different countries to discuss these opportunities together, in order to come to their personal resolution and publish their conclusions and results in all participating schools, in the local communities and to the public. Research work will be sustained by experts’ talks, debates, seminars in each partner school. Five International meetings with students of each country will take place to present the outcome of that research to the European partners and to work together in multinational groups. These multinational groups of students will have to produce Video-Interviews with people concerned with the crisis, create a Photo Exhibition with images of the crises, design Flyers about the opportunities the EU offers to young people, discuss in an International Youth Parliament as a role-play game and inform the local public using the form of a Flashmob. A larger number of students, teachers and families will be involved by official events held each year in every participating school, where all results and conclusions will be disseminated.
