BEHAVE ("The Better Environment, the Higher Academic and Vital Education"), is a project prepared by four European institutions from Latvia, Croatia and Spain (two schools from the same town, Barbastro). 
We start from the common concern for the inclusion of all and every student and the educational community and the improvement of competences and socio-emotional skills that foster positive cohabitation in the schools, all from the exchange of our practices and experiences in this regard and training joint on issues in this field.

The main objectives of our project are:
- Encouraging the development of social, civic and intercultural competence.
- Developing linguistic competence.
- Promoting critical thinking.
- Improving skills for living together in cociety, from training in troubleshooting.
- Fighting against discrimination, segregation, racism, sexism, bullying and violence.
- Helping in the improvement of access, participation and learning achievement for disadvantaged young people.
- Encouraging peer learning.
- Exchanging experiences and good practices at European level.
- Creating networks with other schools which are sustainable over time.

The common leitmotiv of the project will be the inclusion in every school of a Pakistani family (The Maliks) that moves around the three European partner countries of the project looking for better socio-economic opportunities. This is the ideal setting to work at all levels of social inclusion, mutual understanding, interpersonal relationships and dialogue, and thus achieve better coexistence in the schools, while promoting teamwork and collaborative methodoly.

Other methodology guidelines are:
- Active methodology focused on the students to develop their competence and socio-emotional skills.
- Based learning challenges in approach to cases and dilemmas in which students will have to apply reasoning and critical thinking.
- Fundamental support with information technology and communication.
- Networking (through platforms like Skype, e-Twinning, the blog that will be created,...) between the partners.
- Families and educational community involvement in the development and dissemination of activities.
- Dissemination of the most relevant activities which will be carried out in all four partner schools and during the molilities.

The project is aimed at a group of 550 students between 10 and 16 years old, 70 professors and 480 families. 
These objectives and methodology will be embodied into a set of activities that will be incorporated into the Tutorial Activities in the schools, will be developed by all the pupils in each school and which will be displayed during the scheduled mobilities, which are four all in all: an initial one and another at the end held in Barbastro (Spain), and two other intemediate ones in Saldus (Latvia) and Zagreb (Croatia).

The most significant impact will be improvement of the overall environment at schools, the process of conflict resolutions and their reduction, the satisfaction of students. Thus the advance in the knowledge of different cultures, improves language, digital and socio-emotional competence. The tutorial action will also be enriched with materials and activities.
