Ambassador School Programme

The aim of the programme is to increase awareness of Europe, democracy and political choice among young people across the EU. Ambassador schools do this by organising a Europe Day event, setting up an info point, linking up with schools in other EU countries and completing the EPAS Workbook.  Training is provided for teachers and the programme is suitable for Transition Year students.  Schools completing the programme are awarded a European Parliament Ambassador School plaque and each student receives an EPAS Certificate.  60 schools in Ireland are taking part this year.

School Visits

Primary and post-primary school groups are welcome to visit the European Parliament’s Liaison Office in Lr. Mount Street, Dublin.  The visit lasts about an hour and is free of charge.  Students find out about the work of the European Parliament and our Irish MEPs, how decisions are made at EU level, and about Ireland’s membership of the EU.  Students view a DVD and take part in an interactive quiz. Each visit is tailored to the age group of visiting students.

To arrange a visit call (01) 6057900 or email:  EPdublin@ep.europa.eu

 

Euroscola

At Euroscola students aged 16 to 18 from across the EU become an MEP for a day at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.  They debate, negotiate, amend, vote and adopt resolutions on real European issues.  Twelve Irish groups take part each year by participating in competitions organised by the European Parliament Liaison Office in Ireland.  Competition winners receive a subsidy towards the cost of travelling to Strasbourg.
