Multilateral Comenius Project: Europe Without Prejudices at the Berlin College of Further Education for Information Technology and Medical Equipment Technology

In this multilateral Comenius project "Europe Without Prejudices", partner schools in Germany, Estonia, Poland, Greece and Turkey are intending to develop a mutual cultural knowledge and to reduce racism and xenophobia.

The students will be motivated to promote their ideas and their knowledge of the respective countries to exchange and to get a clear picture of each other's culture. In addition to that the possibility to improve their language skills, with regard to English as the project language, and the local languages, is given.

Through the mediation of specific national traditions, ideas, opinions, methods and cultures we also ensure that both the students and the teachers are motivated to see, to realize and accept everyday life in other countries, their cultures mutual understanding, because all people are equal regardless how they manage their lives and live their culture that can still be quite similar to the culture in other countries. The activities that are implemented in this project, make the students aware of their identity, because they will get to know better both their own culture and the others cultures. This is a natural way to overcome prejudice and ignorance. The students will gain a new and better self-esteem and they will start to see and accept each other as part of the same European community.
