ACTIVE – Promoting ACTIVE and Responsible Citizenship In Schools is a cooperation partnership in the School sector (KA220-SCH) funded by the Erasmus+ programme.  The project aims to empower pupils to navigate and make an understanding of the world they live in to enable them to act as active and responsible agents in a democratic society.

Learnable is formally the partner organisation responsible for hosting the International Teacher Training aimed to provide secondary teachers with knowledge and skills for implementing the Toolkit, as the first result of the project, in their classroom.

The partnership includes other 6 partners coming from 5 different countries: Gymnázium Josefa Ressela (the coordinator) and Odpovědná společnost, z. s. (Czech Republic), Learnable (Italy), ECECE (Austria), AKADEMIA WSB (Poland), and Sukromna zakladna skola Felix (Slovakia).

Only active and responsible citizens who are open to communicate despite possible differences in values and needs and are able to reflect on the (possible) impacts of their decisions and actions can sustainably guarantee democratic values and democratic society.

On 26 and 27 September, the international teacher training course organised by Learnable staff was held in Pesaro at the Liceo Classico T. Mamiani.

The training was attended by four secondary school teachers from each partner country and the project staff. In Italy, teachers from four schools in the Province of Pesaro-Urbino were involved (Liceo Classico T. Mamiani, Liceo Artistico Mengaroni, Liceo Scientifico, Musicale e Coreutico Guglielmo Marconi in Pesaro and Istituto Istruzione Superiore Polo 3 Fano).

The training focused on the methodologies and activities proposed in the Toolkit, alternating between lectures and group work in which the teachers involved proposed possible activities to be implemented in the classroom by comparing themselves with their colleagues from various European countries.
