Elos is an educational concept which seeks to promote the European and international dimension in education. It is about preparing young people for a future in a society in which European integration and globalization are a reality. Elos enables them to function in such a society, to deal with its challenges and to take advantage of the opportunities that arise, in a responsible and well-informed manner. In brief, Elos is about students developing ‘Europe competence’: being willing and able to act as an active citizen in a European and wider international context. It is also about schools integrating this approach in their curriculum and school policies, and collaborating with partner schools and organizations abroad to develop a truly European learning environment.
