The ETHOS project targets primary school and kindergarten teachers and offers them innovative lifelong learning opportunities focused on ethical education. The current crisis has shown that the challenges of Europe are not merely economic or political, but also cultural and ethical. Research has proven that childhood education is the most important phase to initiate a healthy development. Ethical education and critical thinking have a key role in forming an ethical mature human being. Despite this, practices, experiences and opportunities for teachers to obtain knowledge in this field vary significantly, as it is the case with the presence of innovative educational approaches. In several EU and candidate countries education professionals belong to groups with the lowest opportunities for prof. development and continuous education/training. The need is clearly recognized by EU (ET2020). Only a good ethical and reflective knowledge coupled with method. knowledge of educators can lead the way toward good ethical education for a sustainable and dialogic future. These are the reasons for which we propose this project, especially addressing challenges of attitude towards nature and genuine intercultural dialogue. The project will analyse the existing state of the art of ethical education in the participating countries to clearly define the needs of the teachers and the most suitable educational methods for children resulting in method. guidelines. Based upon this, educ. materials and tools (both for the training of teachers as well as for pupils; including moral dilemma guides, conflict resolution, ethical underpinning of subjects, critical thinking, guide for developing a code of ethics, etc.) in 7 languages will be developed, with several curricula on the topic that will be available for partic. institutions and others. Pilot training, workshops and test-beds will be carried out in order to develop final outputs, which will be broadly disseminated, also by using ICT.

The project management structure includes the following roles and bodies: • project management group (PMG) • project coordinator and promoter (PC) • senior project leaders (SPL) • administrative contact person (ADMIN) and administration unit (AU) • and project workgroups (WG) that will work on specific workpackages and task In addition to that each partner will form a group of experts, which will participate in the project in accordance with project proposal and tasks, which have to be realized. All groups together build a project team. The project team could be changed during the project lifetime dependent on tasks and problems, which have to be carried out or solved. There is a strong need to monitor project progress permanently in order to assure the quality of work and deliverables, however this process has no to be bureaucratic and to technical. It has to take in account all differences in culture, tradition and language of the participating partners. On each meeting one of the main tasks will be to monitor, discuss and evaluate the project progress. In the case if there are any deviations from plan (financial, scheduling or technical), the PMG will prepare measures to overcome the problems and to realize project in accordance with working plan. A detailed structure of quality control and monitoring is described in “Quality and Evaluation Plan” that each partner must follow.
