History of the Project
The project began to take shape when people from different countries shared their common interest, that is, to make our schools safer places and tolerant places for our students. In order to make a difference, everyone thought of activities, ways and means to promote, prevent and reduce bullying. Thus, our project was born and we entitled it as "Europe Votes for the Safe and Tolerant School".
The project was planned and organized with more or less difficulty due to physical distances between partner schools. Therefore, the first visit was planned to work on the organization and design of the project. In Lithuania, where the coordinator school is located, the project that was previously on paper, has taken shape and it will be conducted in all countries of the project members: Lithuania, Portugal, Germany, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey.
This site is for all the community members from schools in this project but also, for all who identifys him self with our project or just enjoy new experiences. In other words ... it's for everyone.
