In this project students from Europe show that creativity, as a problem solving skill, is both a key competence on the labour market and a means to recognize individual prospects.
Seven schools of all types from all over Europe form a so-called “creative consortium”. This consortium consists of students from different countries and regions, of different languages and cultures, with different educational backgrounds, with and without disabilities. This diversity alone represents the individuality and uniqueness of every agent. These young people have all got one common goal: they want a chance for employment on the labour market and to be a valuable part of society.
Another part of the consortium are the teachers. Every one of them as well is an essential element for the “jigsaw puzzle” of their common goal: to accompany these young people and to stimulate them to become critical, thinking members of the European Union.
The project is subdivided in three phases. Each of these phases is marked by a “milestone”. It starts very soberly with the collection of data (Analysis), followed by the artistic expression (Production) and completed by a “sentence of hope” (Vision).
