Role Play Game for schools

Step into the shoes of a Member of the European Parliament
 

Secondary school students can take a crash course in European lawmaking as they negotiate new legislation for the European Union.

 .

The Role-Play Game is designed for groups of secondary school students aged from 14 to 18+ and takes place at the Parlamentarium in Brussels.

Divided into imaginary political groups, students become Members of the European Parliament and learn to negotiate between themselves to build the future they want. Players must work together and make difficult decisions as they tackle issues such as water scarcity and the implications of technological advances.

The Role-Play Game aims to show how EU legislation is created, from consulting interest groups and forming alliances to negotiating with other institutions and speaking to the media.

The Role-Play Game lasts about 2 ½ hours and is free of charge. Games are held once on Monday afternoons and twice per day from Tuesday to Sunday. Groups should consist of a minimum of 16 and a maximum of 32 students.

Centre is closed on:
1 January / 1 May / 1 November / 24, 25, 31 December

Booking

Owing to high demand, please book the Role-Play Game at least 4 months in advance.
