Description of the Project

This year we have seen that the peaceful harmony of the societies has been damaged with rising wars and some anti - humanitarian attitudes towards people like refugees. Many people started to live as immigrants or refugees in other countries because of the wars caused by sectarianism, racial,national and gender discrimination. Many EU countries which live the effect of these problems are trying to find solutions. However, a lot of countries are still indifferent to these problems.

The first reason of these problems is the success and score focused perspective of the world. There is a competitive and self centered modern life with the developing technology. People have to be successful, skillful, versatile and punctual. They are having long education process in order to be noticed in social and business life. This way of life is motivating just for success, but not for happiness. This education system is unkind to the young generation's mental health. As humanist educators we believe that both knowledge and feelings have equal importance in a good education system.

The second reason of these problems is that the social science education hasn’t been developed enough to create a better people with ideal humanitarian values. The importance of humanitarian values to create awareness and perceptual selectivity have been ignored while teaching. On the other hand,positive sciences which are more developed especially in the last 50 years create a very fast technological progress for a comfortable life, but these sciences are not enough to develop people's ability of living together in peace. We believe that we need to educate people with social sciences like history,philosophy,art and sports with humanism centered interactive education methods . In order to be an active European citizen, our young generation should first understand and preserve basic humanitarian values like respecting cultural diversity, non discrimination, tolerance, unprejudicedness which will end these problems in the world. To make a sustainable investment in our societies in European dimension,in accordance with the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy, a better programmed education and training system based on democratic value transmitting through teaching process of school subjects is needed urgently. By the help of humanism centered education system today’s students(tomorrow’s individuals)will learn how to behave in a humanitarian way towards disadvantaged people and each other to create a peaceful harmony in their society. That is why in this project we as teachers of six countries are searching for the answers of the questions below:

What are we teaching?

What do we value most in our education strategies and measurements?

Do we give any humanitarian values to our students while we are teaching our subjects?

We have chosen similar high schools from different countries which are caring these global problems and want to increase the level of quality in their education system. Teachers and students of secondary schools aged 15-17 will be actively involved in the project.
