Aims and Objectives

For Europe it is necessary to foster an active citizenship. In order to come closer to this aim it’s necessary to be aware of the value systems of different countries and to work on common European values. For that reason EVive defines the following concrete objectives. In EVive we:
a) reflect the meaning of values and value systems in the partner countries as well as on a European level
b) create a working definition of values to clarify their meaning and the working processes
c) analyse the importance of values in the partner countries as well as on a European level
d) compare the values of the European value study with our results
e) compile and analyse existing national concepts for the promotion of values in VET
f) discuss and share didactical methods to promote values effectively in VET
g) compile a common set of European shared values
h) create a curriculum for teaching European shared values
i) design and compile didactical material for teaching European shared values
j) create a common approach

In order to accomplish these objectives we act in four main steps:
1) The description of values on a national and European level
2) The comparison of values on a national and European level
3) The generation of a common approach on a European level
4) The didactical development

With these steps we address the problems of pluralism and offer a basis for young European learners to cope with the challenges of a globalising European environment. We also address the teaching problems of VET-teachers who actually aren’t provided with adequate information, course structures, curricula, and didactical material.
