On March 18th and 19th, the “Deeper learning in the language classroom: Pluriliteracies for global citizenship” project was launched by the ECML. With an international team consisting of Merilin Aruvee (Estonia), Kathrin Jonas-Lambert (Switzerland), Silvia Minardi (Italy), and Oliver Meyer (Germany), this 4-year project aims to reshape language learning for the future.

Recognizing the changing landscape post-COVID-19, our project addresses the need for language classrooms to evolve. In a world influenced by AI and facing challenges to social cohesion and democracy, our mission is to transform language education into a platform for global citizenship.

The Pluriliteracies project is poised to redefine language learning. By fostering learning partnerships between teachers and students, our approach is centred on deep engagement with global issues. Together, learners and educators will conceptualize, communicate, and connect, cultivating not just linguistic skills but the empathy, compassion, and critical thinking necessary to navigate and influence a world brimming with complex challenges.

By equipping learners with the ability to reason and argue over globally relevant issues, we are enabling them to step into diverse perspectives. More than understanding, it's about action inspiring students to become agents of change, addressing global needs with local deeds.
