Be(coming) European – BeE Kick off in Lahr, Germany

Ruth and Maryrose travelled to snow laden Lahr, Germany to attend the Be(coming) European, a Grundtvig Multilateral project, Funded under the Life Long Learning programme. The BeE consortium is made up of 8 European Partners from Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Austria, Belgium and Malta.

Be(coming) European wants to develop a comprehensive concept of basic education in the European Union based on a method that allows a flexible adaptation to individual conditions, i.e. adaptable to specific target groups, socio-cultural backfrounds and conditions of education institutions.

This two-year project will be conducted in three phases:

  1. Analysis of the problems of a comprehensive and flexible concept of basic education with a European perspective. Meaning that cultural, political, economic and technological dimensions are not only add-ons but also as fields of application for basic literacy or numeracy but particularly for learning competences.
  2. Elaboration of a comprehensive concept of basic education. This will be done on a general competence level not on a content level, so that it can be applied in different educational contexts.
  3. Implementation of the concept into the educational work of the project partners.
