Rescur Surfing the Waves was a three-year Lifelong Learning Programme Comenius project that developed a resilience curriculum for early and primary education in Europe through intercultural and transnational collaboration.
The RESCUR project ran from 2012 to 2015 and was coordinated by the University of Malta and the partner universities of Crete (Greece), Lisbon (Portugal), Orebro (Sweden), Pavia (Italy), and Zagreb (Croatia). The project developed a specialised curriculum in resilience for marginalised groups such as Roma children, children with disability and individual educational needs and children with a migrant background.
