About Candle Wisdom

Candle Wisdom is a project (2018-2020) under the Erasmus+ Programme of Strategic Partnerships for Schools, which joins primary schools in Latvia, Finland, Italy, Turkey and Portugal with the aim of meeting the needs of the modern world, with large implications for literacy.

Interaction is increasingly conducted through social networks, particularly among young people. However, good literacy skills are an essential prerequisite for being able to participate actively and civically in society.

Digitalization, labor market, social and civic participation are factors that require a greater capacity to assess information critically, in the context of an apparently infinite universe in available options. Good literacy skills are needed to manage our health, remain socially active and politically involved.

In a long-term perspective, the expected goal is to improve the overall level of literacy among students in all partner schools and their local communities.

Schools are expected to adapt the innovative methods learned during the project in their teaching and learning programs.



strengthen and develop closer and more regular cooperation between partner schools


promote the development of innovative educational processes facilitating literacy


awareness of the importance of a high level of literacy skills in modern society


promote the personal and professional development of the teachers involved
