What is SMILE?

SMILE project has spread from the idea that we are part of a global economic and geopolitical system.In so many words,we are becoming one world.Our schools are being asked to instill in our children not only an awareness and appreciation for changing global circumstances,but also to prepare them to sucessfully navigate the challenges presented by an increasingly multiethnic and multicultural community.Today,a quality education must include an understanding of,appreciation for, and the ability to function in a multiethnic, multinational, interrelated world.Therefore, all our schools have the same urgent need:we need to make our students tolerant and receptive to coexisting and cooperating with students of various nations and cultures.
We decided, thus, to demonstrate what the elements that can help nations come together and overcome any prejudices are. Elements directly connected to our school curricula and our countries' geographical position.These elements are music and sea.Music has always been viewed as a powerful tool in breaking barriers and promoting cross-cultural appreciation.There is a long and strong history of all our countries using music as a vehicle to promote cultural understanding. Music is the universal language with an appeal that transcends language, cultural or religious boundaries.Engaging in musical activities with people of another culture or country can increase cultural understanding and tolerance.In addition,the sea unites people and countries across the globe.The most important civilizations were born near water.The river and sea routes facilitate transportation, trade, exchanging of ideas, habits, myths, history, communication among people,nations and cultures.
