FINAL CONFERENCE OF EUROPE PROJECT

TOLERANCE AND RESPECT: EDUCATION FOR SOCIAL INCLUSION

An innovative approach to reduce violence and promote tolerance and intercultural understanding through education

Results from the 2-year EUROPE Project

Ensuring Unity and Respect as Outcomes for the People of Europe

The conference

Responding to the Paris Declaration of EU Education Ministers of 17 March 2015, the ‘Declaration on promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education’, the EUROPE project, coordinated by Fondazione Hallgarten Franchetti – Centro Studi Villa Montesca (Italy), funded by the Initiatives for Policy Innovation strand of the Erasmus+ Programme, focused on fostering the role of education in promoting equality, social cohesion, nurturing mutual respect and embedding fundamental values in society

The final EUROPE conference will present the key results from the EUROPE project, that has been implementing and exploring the benefits of an innovative approach across 3 EU Member States (Portugal, the Netherlands and Sweden) to prevent violence and radicalization and promote social inclusion and integration through education: the Quiet Time with Transcendental Meditation Programme for schools (QT/TMP).

We invite you to join us at the Final Conference of EUROPE project to discover and learn:

  • The overall conceptual framework of the project will be presented as an innovative approach to tackle the root cause of violence and to promote tolerance, respect and understanding among people with different ethnic or religious backgrounds, together with how the project can support teachers and educators in dealing with diversity, so as to help children and young people to become responsible and open-minded members of our diverse society.
  • Scientific research results will be presented from studies conducted at each implementation site together with a comparison of results from participating countries for bringing it up on a wider European level. During the conference, the schools involved in the project from the different countries will share their experiences of implementing the programme.
  • In addition to introducing the outcomes of the project, this half-day conference will allow further networking, engaging EUROPE project experts, researchers, partners and schools with interested policy-makers and stakeholders. Opportunities will be provided to discuss research results and conclusions as well as policy recommendations.
