The project "Different Stories - Same Values", DSSV, has the aim to make students between the ages of 14 and 19 from seven EU-countries find their own identity, as individuals and as citizens of their own countries, but also as citizens of EU.
Students worked together on line and also in real life at the project meetings, learned about the start of democracy, human rights, entrepreneurship, and why we need EU, e.g. When they learn about their own background and get to know students from the partner schools, they realized that despite our differences we share the same values. This will help them later, both in their future academic and professional careers. Being able to visit another country and staying in a family is an experience for life, which is not possible for students coming from disadvantaged areas. This improves language skills and social skills. Since a lot of the work was on line the ICT-skills improved not only for the students, but also for the teachers in the project.
