Slowing Down

A new face of European education

We believe that enjoying life, living in harmony with nature, discovering relations with older generations and being open to old customs or workshops, will have a big impact on creating active citizenship and promoting healthy lifestyle.

Welcome to our Erasmus+ Slowing Down, a new face of European education’ project website. We are realizing KA2 project tasks in 2-year period: 2018-2020. It was designed as a kind of a research. Thanks to that all of us will have a chance to work out, compare or contrast methods, ideas to slow down absorbing mostly impractical knowledge in education and rather focus on different values. As six partners from diffrent countries, we have noticed the increasing stress in education, for both sides teachers and students and a tendency to live or work fast. The main goal of the project is to search for harmony, good relations, healthy lifestyle, develop our own skills or to find passion. We are happy to discover together our potentials, but also find some new alternatives in teach-learn process, more focused on the individuals and a new chance for European education. The participants of that project share a common opinion that education should be concentrated on human, our unique, beauty of life and noticing its possibilities. Life moves at such a fast pace that it seems to pass us by before we can really enjoy it. However, it does not have to be this way. Let’s rebel against a hectic lifestyle and slow down to enjoy life!
