IncludU focus on EU fundamental values of equality, tolerance and non-discrimination and aims to familiarize pupils with them through interactive and experiential workshops and innovative educational material combining ICTs, gaming, art and fertile exchange of ideas and experiences.

IncludU also is designed to create an interactive learning environment where universities, Lyceums from various regions of Greece, youth NGOs, municipalities, regional authorities, cultural organizations, artists, volunteers, and students will promote the establishment of focal points within the schools which, theretofore, will act as multipliers for spreading values and knowledge gained towards their local societies.

Moreover, IncludU will blend senior citizens and migrants who experienced the repercussions of discrimination and displacement with youngsters in order to raise their awareness on the importance of an Open and Democratic Europe.
