THE EUROPEAN ABC "Awareness of Borders to Cross"

October 19, 2018

Welcome to our website Erasmus+ „The European ABC – Awareness of Borders to Cross“

We are students and teachers from high schools in Parabiago/Italy, Bendinat/Spain, Torun/Poland and Syke/Germany. We have done some great international projects in the past, and now we are cooperating again in our latest project - „The European ABC“ - „Awareness of Borders to Cross“. We do not only meet new friends in Europe but also learn about the lives, hopes and fears of those young people who are seeking refuge in Europe or live as migrants in our countries. We try to look over our horizons, learn about each other, overcome prejudice and respect each other – and absorb the manifold inspirations we get from each others' beliefs and values. We want to be active European citizens who believe in democracy, freedom and equality. We have been working, travelling, laughing and crying together with our friends from Syria, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and other countries. Here you will find documents, fotos, videos and much more about our beautiful successful Erasmus+ Project “The European ABC”.  

Students’ performances

During a few-day workshop, the participants prepared a performance which was  a summary of the Italian stage of the project.
