This project aims to create awareness among European school children about the risks caused by fire, its prevention and the most important measures to put in place in case of emergency and fire. Children are one of the most vulnerable target groups, especially children from underprivileged backgrounds (roma, immigrants, socio-economic problems, etc).
At the end of the project the children would not only have gained a better understanding about preventing fires and reacting in case of a fire emergency, but will have also improved their social and civic skills. They will feel more confident and responsible towards the society that they live in.
By participating in this project, the school establishments will open themselves to new teaching and learning actors and to the local community. They will provide the students a nice, fun and welcoming environment where to learn and the teachers will be able to introduce new methods from the informal and non formal contexts into their regular teaching ones.
