“Building on Linguistic and Cultural Diversity for social action within and beyond European universities” is a 3-year Erasmus+ KA2 project starting in December 2022.
As citizens and civil society organisations become more active in shaping policies and influencing new models of social participation, universities are called to nurture social action and civic engagement in their students and academic staff.
Particularly, the BOLD project bridges the gap between initial teacher education and engagement in civil society by supporting student teachers’ civic engagement and active citizenship and by promoting the collaboration of higher education institutions with civil organisations and associations.
Activities of the project include the creation of open educational resources, hybrid courses, and the design, implementation and assessment of social action projects targeting the development of professional skills for student teachers of different subjects, based on a double principle: first, active commitment (savoir s’engager) and activism for a more sustainable linguistic and cultural future and, second, linguistic and cultural skills for more social activism.
