Children are emotionally unequipped, behavioral, concentration problems, aggression is rising. A dissatisfaction in bigger or smaller extend is present on all parties included – children, teachers and parents. With our Erasmus+ project we want to react on that. The team consists of 6 primary and secondary schools from 6 countries: Slovenia, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal and Spain.
The goal of our project is to increase the levels of happiness about school and life in general in pupils and also in teachers. Happiness of people is somehow put aside and yet we all know that only happy individuals compose a healthy, creative, emphatic and active society.
