Creating a common feeling among teenagers

for a New Vision of EUROPE

Project number: 2023-1-IT02-KA220-SCH-000151840

The Project

The project, inspired by the archetypal figure of Saint Francis, encompasses a range of significant themes including respect for nature, gender equality, pacifism, inclusion, and acceptance of diversity and disabilities.

Through these themes, the project aims to promote the psychological and social development of students and the involved communities.

A European Journey for a Shared Future

The project will last for three years, commencing on October 4, 2023, and concluding on October 3, 2026.

This closing date is particularly significant as it coincides with the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the passing of Saint Francis of Assisi, a figure of exceptional importance in history and spirituality.

Project Goals


Throughout the three-year project, the University will administer and process the results of specifically designed questionnaires addressing the topics.


The questionnaires will be available to students on a specially created app and will be accessible in all the languages of the countries involved.


Furthermore, the app will serve as a ‘bridge’ and a safe space where students can interact with each other, starting from the topics under study, to engage and connect beyond the barriers of distance.

App iOS Android


Every year, students from the participating schools will read a different text related to the figure of Saint Francis. Two of them, taking turns, will derive a theatrical work from it and stage the performance.


The first representation will be recorded and broadcasted by TV Capodistria.


Over the course of three years, all schools will stage a text, while the ‘champion’ classes from partner institutions will respond to the proposed questionnaires, thus providing a method of assessment and comparison regarding the changes in ‘feelings,’ related to the topics, and in relation to their physical and mental development.

Theatrical works


At the end of the journey, on October 3, 2026, the 800th anniversary of the death of St. Francis, an international conference on “The Franciscan Contribution to the Birth of Europe” will be held in Brussels.


A day that will involve, in addition to a representation of students from participating institutions, academics and experts who will discuss the foundational values of Europe in relation to the topics addressed.


During the conference, the final results of the studies conducted through questionnaires on the sample classes will also be presented.

The Conference


The partners will conduct a systematic study that will investigate the development of knowledge and skills in students over a period of three years, during the unique phase represented by puberty.


A study that will examine questionnaire responses, providing an evaluation that will be distributed in all the languages of the partner countries, also in the form of an e-Book.
