Lithuania supports the anti-corruption education in Moldova
On 22nd of March the second seminar for teachers from different regions of Moldova, within the framework of the project “European lessons 2: anticorruption education component”, was held in Chisinau, Moldova. The project aims to educate conscious, critical minded and responsible citizens by developing and implementing anti-corruption education in secondary schools.
During the seminar, teachers shared their experiences and good practises of implementation of anticorruption education tools. In addition, the initiative to sign a Declaration of Integrity and join the national network of Honest Schools was presented.
Education experts Rodica Eşanu and Eugenia Negru have developed teaching materials for teachers, students and pupils that can be used independently or as an integrated part of study subjects, such as Romanian and Universal History, Civic Education, Romanian Language and Literature, Universal Literature, Personal Development, Education for Society, as well as optional course „European Integration for You”. Some of the themes presented:
- “Corruption makes us poorer”;
- “Political corruption steals the vote of the citizen”;
- “When can the law be a fertile environment for corruption?”
- “About honesty”.
At the end of the project, all the good practices will be collected and disseminated in order to assist teachers and managers, so that the integrity education becomes an element of the school’s organizational culture within the national Honest Schools network.
During the project, experts from Lithuania have travelled to Moldova to help to start preparation of the educational material. At the end of 2018, a group of teachers and experts from Moldova have visited Lithuania, observing Lithuanian educational institutions. The duration of the project is two years, ending in April 2019.
The project is financed by the funds of the Development Cooperation and Democracy Promotion Program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania and implemented by Centre for Modern Didactics from Vilnius (Lithuania) in partnership with the organization PRO DIDACTICA (Moldova).
