As a result of the sanitary situation present throughout Europe, Euroscola was unfortunately forced to cancel all sessions which were due to take place since March 2020.
However, during this time, the European Parliament has striven to design safe alternatives, in order to enable students and teachers alike to take part in the Euroscola programme remotely, while keeping its educational and interactive nature focused on EU issues.
We have planned two Euroscola online sessions for the end of 2020, which will each last two hours. These sessions will take place on 27th November and 14th December, with the presence of two vice-presidents of the European Parliament, Ms Dita Charanzova and Mr Rainer Wieland.
The first online session will focus on Environment and Climate Change Action, and the second will look at Education and Youth Employment.
If your school is invited to participate remotely in one of our sessions, you will be directly contacted by your national European Parliament Liaison Office.
Alternatively, we invite you to follow the sessions online via the livestream which will be available on our website and social media platforms.
We are looking forward to embarking on this new challenge together of making Euroscola fully digital!
Euroscola offers an immersive experience in the Chamber of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, allowing high-school students to learn about European integration by experiencing it first hand.
Students from the 27 EU Member States are selected to become Members of the European Parliament for one day.
They take the floor in plenary and committee sessions to debate and vote on resolutions on current affairs, all the while practising their language skills and making friends with fellow students from across Europe.
Teachers also have the opportunity to meet their colleagues and exchange feedback about their own classroom practices & experiences.
