THE PROJECT

The Bringing Europe Home at School (BEHAS) project, a Strategic Partnership comprising eight
partners involved in education and mainly in primary education aims at developing the skills of the
staff of Primary Education on the basis of an event of common European value and importance, so
that all employees and executives, consultants, teachers and teacher trainers will be in the position to
design, organize and efficiently implement an event with long-term, beneficial impact on primary
education.
The proposed events, based on which, the project evolves are the following, as they are of
importance for primary education:
1. European Day of Languages (26/09)
2. World Teacher’s Day (05/10)
3. European Day on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse
(18/11)
4. Europe Day (09/05)
5. European Day of Chocolate (07/07)
On the basis of these European and the Global Days and the respective thematic fields, the partners
and their stakeholders design, coordinate, pilot and implement specific and creative action plans,
which comprise multiple educational activities.
Our methodology is blended and pertains to continuous, as well as intensive distance and on-the- spot
training to deliver the specific action plans along with a toolkit of training practices, which will be
easily accessible and ready to use in the primary school. The European partners, within the aim of
successfully organizing events on the aforementioned days in order to:
a) design and implement seminars/training seminars/workshops on the subject of four (4) European
Days and one World Day
b) implement those activities
c) share and develop best practices
d) promote and disseminate the specific results
Thus, the Directorate for Primary Education of Rodopi, in Thrace, Greece, as the coordinator along
with two other regional authorities, the Malpils novada dome Municipal Council in Latvia, the
Directorate for Primary Education, Kocaeli Il Milli Egitim Mudurlugu, in Turkey, in cooperation with

Digitale in Italy, form a Strategic Partnership which aims at establishing an efficient cooperation and
network of administrative, teaching, training and technological staff alike and setting into action
creative and educationally fruitful practices of EU and global interest.
The BEHAS project and initiative sets all the good practices into action, tests, pilots and assess their
impact and builds upon project activities that will lead to high-impact results in the thematic field of

the specific European and Global Days and beyond. The BEHAS project, prepared and delivered on the
project’s website, combines an educational platform and a website, where all thirty (30) action plans
organized in five (5) modules, one for every thematic day, will be available and accessible for free
upon the completion of the project.
During the project, the partners’ staff and beneficiaries will share, comment, organize and assess the
activities, which will be delivered in their final form in English and the national languages of the
project. The BEHAS most significant objective, motivation and longer-term benefit is to truly bring
Europe home at primary school and establish best practices in the celebrated thematic fields of the
