"Tasty routes around Europe: getting closer through national dishes and food traditions"
We are a primary school in Athens, Greece, attended by students aged from 6 to 12 years old. Our school takes pride in fostering democratic values and cultural diversity, promoting social inclusion and tolerance, while encouraging European citizenship and intercultural awareness. In this light, we undertake a variety of activities and organise numerous events which are intended to help our students increase their awareness of diverse cultures and traditions. Taking part in joint etwinning and Erasmus projects is one way of achieving this.
As its title suggests, the recommended project is about different European dishes and food traditions, which are expected to bring students from different European countries closer to each other's culture. Food is definitely part of our culture and so are our eating habits and traditions. Working on this project, students from different countries will be engaged in interesting and creative tasks related to the topic of food as part of their country's culture. They will discover typical and unique dishes, using a variety of learning methods and tools; they will share their countries eating habits and food traditions with their European partners; they will develop their creative skills while preparing tasty dishes from their own country or from their partner countries; they will organise special events, such as a food exhibition or a cooking competition; they will work on alternative 'green', organic dishes; they will visit different places where food products are made, served or exhibited; they will even create their own booklet containing unique dishes and food traditions from different places of each European partner country.
If you are interested in our proposal and want to participate in a joint project that will take us along tasty routes around Europe, do not hesitate to contact us.

We ideally search for four or five partner schools from different European countries with similar educational goals and ideologies, which will equally contribute to the project for its successful completion. In particular, each partner school will be assigned a specific role in the project. For example, our school will undertake the overall coordination of the project and will make sure that all its stages, tasks and mobilities are successfully completed. The organisation of the Twin Space platform, the dissemination of the project, the teaching and learning methods employed as well as the evaluation of the project and its various activities are some of the tasks that will be allocated to partner schools, depending on individual skills and preferences. At the same time, all the partners will carry out common activities within the framework of different mobilities in each participating country. It will definitely help if our prospective partners have taken part in Erasmus+ projects before. Yet, even novice partners are welcome as long as they share the same vision, are highly motivated and are keen to exchange innovative teaching and learning practices with each other.
