B-in-EU short description

B-in-EU is a project that — while compliant with the objectives and priorities of the Jean Monnet Module of the Erasmus+ Programme – aims at strengthening the EU’s resilience by fostering the society’s participation in processes that define and shape the European integration process today. Given the disintegrative tendencies in the EU today and a fading sense of the EU’s relevance that several stakeholders in the member-states face, B-in-EU makes a case that by developing a novel approach to teaching and learning European integration to business students, it is possible to empower them and turn them into dedicated EU citizens, advocates of European integration and supporters of more Europe. Indeed, the great promise that B-in-EU holds is that it will address Greek and international students at Deree-The American College of Greece, an US institution whose proud tradition of inducing social change dates back to 1875. Located in Greece, i.e. a country of the fate’s cross-roads, B-in-EU, to be run by Dr. Anna Visvizi, a seasoned educator, academic and manager, could once again turn Deree into the agent of change in Greece and elsewhere; this time with a view to promoting active European citizenship, raising awareness of the EU’s role in a globalised world, and facilitating future engagement and people-to-people dialogue worldwide.
