The „U-Knight-Europe” project is undertaken with the broad objective of promoting Europeancitizenship through the emphasis on historical and cultural heritage. Its main aim could be ex-pressed by the phrase: multi-cultural education and the unification of different cultures. The un-derlying idea of this international partnership of 9 countries (Poland, Netherlands, Finland, Eng-land, France, Portugal, Cyprus, Italy and Spain) is to work on raising the students culturalawareness and to develop their understanding of the needs of others in their communities. Thiswill be achieved through the study of knight heroes in the participating nations’ histories. Theprimary goals are to extend pupils knowledge of knights from Europe by discovering their styleof living, their charter, their values and aims in order to resurrect a “Knight Spirit” in youngpeople. We intend to present an alternative way of living to our pupils and we will encouragethem to follow it by becoming a contemporary Knight of Europe with the motto and missiontraced from the medieval knights’ code: "Protect the weak, defenseless, helpless and fight forthe general welfare of all". We Endeavour to create realistic and hands-on experiences (for ex-ample the becoming a knight ceremony, inter-country tournaments, intra- school competitions,music and art festivals and above all - voluntary work). These opportunities will encouragegreat commitment from the whole school community and will provide worthwhile and excitingexperiences for the students, teachers and parents. Throughout the two years this project aimsto work against the unfair attitudes of racism, xenophobia and intolerance. The ultimate end-product of the schools cooperation will be the creation of a multilingual website.
