We think it is important for young people to understand why the European Union exists, what it has achieved and what European democracy means. The European Parliament Liaison Office in the UK offers a secondary school programme of online sessions, teaching resources and programmes, some aspects of which involve professional development. The European Parliament services in Brussels and Strasbourg also offer a range of enriching experiences such as online youth seminars, the European Youth Event and if you are interested in joining a pan-European network of like-minded Europeans we would invite you to check out together.eu.
European Parliament Ambassador School Programme is an EU-wide programme which will be rolled out for the first time in the UK over the next few months. This programme is aimed at secondary and vocational schools in the UK and involves quite a high level of commitment across the school. The European Parliament Ambassador School Programme is a network of schools across the EU raising awareness of European parliamentary democracy and European citizenship values.
Euroscola is an educational project that brings together secondary school pupils from all other the EU (including the UK, as a former member) to part in a simulation of the work of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
This resource is for those of us who wish to enrich the learning of young people and to provide an opportunity for exploring Europe and the European Union - what it embodies and represents and its relevance to UK citizens in Europe today.
