We are on a mission to promote integrity in school education. Recognizing the challenges of our times, we believe in equipping the younger generation with the moral compass and ethical leadership skills necessary to navigate the complex landscapes of the future. With the goal of fostering an integrity-based culture, our project is not just an educational initiative—it’s a movement toward creating a transparent, just, and fair society.

We envision a world where young minds are nurtured to become “integrity leaders”. Where teachers are empowered to guide students not only in their academic pursuits but also in developing a strong ethical foundation. Where parents and the community actively participate in reinforcing the values of honesty, fairness, and responsibility.

In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, the trials of integrity are more prevalent than ever. From the schoolyard interactions to the huge digital world, young individuals confront ethical dilemmas on multiple fronts. The “Future Integrity Leaders” initiative was created from the need to create educational frameworks that address these challenges head-on, guiding the youth toward becoming integrity-conscious citizens.

Through innovative digital toolboxes, interactive learning modules, and a comprehensive pedagogical framework, we are developing resources that resonate with students, teachers, and parents alike. By blending traditional values with modern technology, our approach is designed to be as engaging as it is informative.

We provide teachers and school staff with the methodologies and tools to create a culture of integrity within the school environment. By embracing cross-curricular and non-formal teaching methods, we ensure that the message of integrity transcends the classroom and becomes a lived experience.

Parents are pivotal in the integrity education ecosystem. We create avenues for parents to engage in meaningful dialogues with their children and the school community, fostering an environment where ethical behavior is recognized, celebrated, and replicated.

Our project introduces students to the concept of whistleblowing, dispelling myths, and presenting it as an act of courage and strength. Through videos, comics, playing, video games, and storytelling, we encourage students to practice integrity, not as a lesson, but as a lifestyle.

Gamification for Intercultural Education

Support the process of social integration of intercultural school communities by providing necessary practical resources for teachers, educational institutions.

Counteracting the phenomena of intolerance, mistrust, ignorance, traditional and prejudice against other cultures, peoples, races or religions hostility and prejudice against other cultures, peoples, races or religions as a result enables creativity based on cooperation.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the efforts already undertaken by the European Union to promote cultural diversity, which is a real richness when individual cultural groups take care of their ‘treasures’ on the one hand and can show it to others in the right light on the other. This is the only way to create a strong foundation for building creative attitudes among the young generation.
The project is designed to:
  1. Create a pedagogical impact by generating innovative, game-based teaching methodology;
  2. Impact on training practices of educators, trainers, teachers in adult education;
  3. Impact on the quality of work and competences of teachers by creating educational materials, including a textbook and an e-learning course.

One of the most important tasks of the modern education system is the problem of preparing the young generations for life in a society where it will be necessary to define one’s attitude towards others, which are different in cultural terms. Are we adequately prepared to live with people with different cultural identities from ours? Can education overcome or reduce existing stereotypes and prejudices and, in the long term, prevent social tensions and conflicts? These questions remain open.

The learning material include:
  1. Identification of current intercultural problems in the local community;
  2. Instructions on preparation of a didactic game concept appropriate to intercultural issues;
  3. Preparation of a scenario of a game for the three types of environment: outdoor, indoor (board game), online;
  4. Lessons from the implementation (testing process of the prepared game);
  5. Practical tips & recommendations for teachers;
  6. Description of the developed games, instructions for outdoor, board and Internet versions.
Support for creativity cultural awareness

The aim is to develop skills and competences that enhance the creativity of participants, contribute to social inclusion through culture and art, shape cultural awareness and build intercultural dialogue through didactic games used in intercultural education.

Project results:

By using the project results in the intercultural education of teaching games, whose key features are creativity, fun, rules and joy, teachers will gain very useful tools that are liked and used periodically in the implementation of school curricula.
