More Education for Tolerant Europe
The most important characteristic of a human being in a rich interactive situation is tolerance of difference. How to live with differences is a question that has always interested people and the educational world. The best response is always to encourage intercultural dialogue through all forms of collaborating with other policies makers and stakeholders in the EU context. (Declaration on promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance, and non-discrimination through education – Paris, March 2015).
The Partnership " MORE EDUCATION FOR TOLERANT EUROPE" - METE is made up of 5 partners from PL, MT, IT, PT, CY and aims at countering influences that lead to fear and exclusion of others and should help adult people to develop capacities for independent judgment, critical thinking, and ethical reasoning. The diversity of our world's many religions, languages, cultures, and ethnicities is not a pretext for conflict but is a treasure to discover.
This project is designed to support the adult educators to improve tolerance culture and diversity respect in their learner's groups. Specific objectives are: to improve and enrich teaching tools in adult education for trainers and staff working with adults, to promote voluntary activities for inclusive citizenship built starting by the intercultural approach.
To reach the project objectives partners' institutions will search for innovative teaching methods that will be tested in this specific context. Those methods will be gathered in the project " METE" training e-book available online, ready to implement and use by adults training centres and schools across Europe. The e-book can be downloaded here.
The project will reach relevant stakeholders of local communities representative: non-profit organizations, involved in migrants crisis management, local Municipalities, citizens associations, informal groups of seniors actively in helping vulnerable groups, associations representing the ethnic and linguistic minorities living in Europe.
