Additionally, FDCBPCS is a partner under the "Not only fair play" project, promoting approaches for balancing sports and studies among European schools.
FDCBPCS implemented also an Erasmus+ KA2 project, which was recognized as a success story by the BG NA and the European Commission: “V.I.S.I.ON: Visual Impairment Social Inclusion ON” - www.vision-erasmusplus.eu. The drama work with visually impaired children and young people is about to continue within the framework of a new project under the Operation programme “Human resources development”.

FDCBPCS is also involved in a number of local development initiatives, among which the functioning and strategy implementation of Rakovski Local Action Group in Bulgaria.
Since 16 years we are developing the cultural approach with peer-to-peer-learning with partners in German and Europe and with different forms of schools all over Europe. Our partners from the Global South inspire the processes by their experiences with integration, social transformation and developing new perspectives for especially young people.
Their approaches are convincing schools in Europe to invite such a group of young artist for one to two weeks.
In Hamburg we are developing concepts and projects with different schools in poor neighborhoods. And since last year we started our first project with the cultural approach with peer-to-peer-learning with German students, young refugees and a group from Nepal.One background is the presentation of our project as “best practice project” in the “Orientation Framework Global Development”, which has been developed by the Ministry for Development and Economic Cooperation together with Conference of the Ministries for Culture and Education. It will be the main document for promoting global education in schools all over Germany.
It is the same time a contribuation to the World Action Programme of the UNESCO.
In the CULPEER project we will involve also our refugees who are volunteering in our project within the framework of "German Volunteerin Service - Welcome"

The most relevant activities and experiences of the partner organisation come from the use of performance arts for development of soft skills among young people with various disadvantages, including - visual impairments and other mental or physical disabilities, young people at risk of exclusion. Drama workshops with mixed groups have been organized in Palermo for local participants, which members of Music'Arte - Stefania Vitale and Casimiro Alaimo - have been implementing since 2010.
And, more recently, the involvement of the organisation in the V.I.S.I.ON project, the purpose of which is to develop self-confidence, a positive self-concept and awareness among visually impaired children and young people through drama and performance arts training program. The work, which currently Stefania and Casimiro are doing with the local group of young people in Palermo, under V.I.S.I.ON is considered invaluable for the future project, which aims to incorporate the theatrical training program into the V.I.E.W. approach for training v.i. youth workers.

The Willy-Brandt-Gesamtschule is very well equipped with media. In the learning center students research substantive issues with the new media. Similarly, there is this possibility in the I-Pad classes.
The school is known beyond Cologne limit for their emphasis on social learning, creativity and movement and their pioneer projects carried out. Especially popular is the circus Radelito that exists for more than 20 years. There, the students can train every break. Every Thursday the 3 hour Circus AG takes place. A dedicated student company Radelito GmbH takes care of all the things around the colourful bustle Circus.
More than 100 pupils of the Willy-Brandt-Gesamtschule are active in the circus. The students come from all vintages of the school. The circus is the only place in the school where pupils of all years work together regularly. Each year, the circus has approximately 50 public performances, from the premiere to presentations in the own kindergarten and street festivals up to events of the professional theatre place Circus Roncalli.
The Willy-Brandt-Gesamtschule currently run several classes with refugee children and youth, we are therefore engaged in developing concepts for better integration of refugee children.
Since 2005 the project “SOMOS -We are!” is running. This award-winning project offers students of the Willy-Brandt-Gesamtschule and young people from Cologne's sister city Corinto in Nicaragua the opportunity to get to know each other in the framework of an exchange program and to work together in the area of the Circus. The school promotes community involvement and understanding of the world through a “Sponsored Walk”, school partnerships and the "Somos Project" with Corinto / Nicaragua.

Profesionalna gimnazia (Vocational school) “Prof. Dr Asen Zlatarov” is the biggest high-school in the district of Vidin. Annually the school trains on average about 650 students in the field of economy, tourism and electronics. There are about 50 teachers and 16 administrative staff members. In addition to the vocational preparation of the students they also acquire secondary education.
The high-school actively works under various projects, which aim at improving the quality and results from teaching, increasing the vocational skills of students and teachers, acquisition of key competences, creating a modern and adequate learning environment.
Each year between 20 and 40 students conduct their production practices in various partner organizations in the EU, while about 30 youths and teachers work on diversified topics with colleagues and peers from more than 10 European countries. During the last year the school worked under 7 projects, supported by the OP Human resources development and the Lifelong Learning Programme.
In addition to the issues of vocational education, the school teams also tackle extra-curricular activities, arts, dances, healthy eating, sports and others. The teachers are constantly facing the issue of finding new forms and methods for education and upbringing of the children.
Within the Comenius programme the school worked under two projects, which are connected with culture and arts – “I would like to tell you a story” and „Entrepreneurial, healthy and creative”.
The last project ended in the summer of 2014 and presented the benefits from healthy eating through a unique fairytale. The present application will be joined by teachers, who have experience with the above mentioned initiatives.
Concerning the administrative, technical and financial capacity of the school we have to mention that the school annually manages projects at a value of more than 100 000 euro.
We are a multicultural school. The majority of the pupils have a history of migration. As our neighborhood is very politically engaged, we have a very international program. We are since years very familiar with ERSAMUS projects and have started in 2013 to work closely together with Buero fuer Kultur- und Medienprojekte gGmbH and the „KinderKulturKarawane“.
We started in 2013 with a 5-days-project with a young group from India. That was a very rich experience for all participants, which motivated us to invite in 2014 a group from Tanzania and to spread the project out from the school to the neighborhood.
We succeeded in involving the African community into the project and two socio-cultural centres.

DIEYTHINSI DEYTEROVATHMIAS EKPAIDEYSHS A ATHINAS (DIDE A Athins in short ) is a public , non profit organization that operates operates under the authority of the Greek Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs and is responsible for the coordination and management of 187 secondary schools in the greater area of Athens (Central Cluster of Perfecture of Attica).
DIDE A Athinas is encouraging all schools to get involved in innovative projects that aim to enable creativity and critical thinking as well as interdisciplinary examples and projects. As a teacher in experimental school but also as an officer to promote new methods of learning our role is to implement the output of our work here and to make sure that this work will continue to live well after the time our project ends.
The area of responsibility of DIDE A Athinas is not only to supervise and control the management of the 187 secondary schools but also to create opportunities to the schools to develop and elaborate programs that will support teachers and principals to provide high quality teaching addressing the complex reality in classrooms and adoption of new methods and tools. Many of the students come from low social status and disadvantaged urban group with economic and language difficulties. Others are displaying poor learning results due to ex closure. The number of students that score low achievements during their schooling had increased recently resulting to early school leaving. Increasing numbers has shown that it is very important to act immediately and to offer enriching learning opportunities to the students who often complain that what they learn is completely cut off and irrelevant from real life.
