TRACE - Traditional children's stories for a common future
The aim of the project is to introduce to target group, teachers and librarians who works with children from age 6 to age 12, as well as wider audience, all the EU countries, with traditional children's stories from partners' countries. Partners will choose the most quality children's literature of the European countries involved in this project. Selected stories are going to be translated to languages of partner countries, as well as to English, and workshops will be created for them. The result includes introducing children from their early age to the culture and tradition of other European countries and developing their critical thinking.
The project includes 3 transnational meetings (in Zagreb, Tripoli and Granada) and training for teachers in Zadar, Croatia. A study will be undertaken on children stories, stories selected for translating and workshops and guidelines created for teachers and librarians. The project includes also pilot projects in schools and the creation of a platform for European children stories.
The project is being implemented in a partnership with the National and University Library in Zagreb - project coordinator (Croatia), association Petit Philosophy in Zadar (Croatia), "Josip Pupačić" elementary school from Omis (Croatia), Euro-Arab Foundation for Higher Studies from Granada (Spain) and the University of Peloponnese from Tripoli (Greece). The project takes place from the 1st September 2018 until the 31 August 2020 and is financed by the Erasmus+ programme.
Exceptionally good practice - the final project evaluation concluded that because of quality execution of activities with successful inclusion of target groups, quality and scope of results, promotion of European values of multilingualism and multiculturalism, achieved positive outputs and comprehensive dissemination activities, this project can be promoted in broader European framework as an example of exceptionally good practice of the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus+ project.
