What if we could make the European Union accessible for everyone? The Europe@School programme aims to raise awareness of what the EU does and promote a European identity among young people. This year, the objective of the JEF Europe Annual Work Plan 2020 called “Europe@School: New Directions” is to help educators to work with disadvantaged groups, such as young people with disabilities, young Roma and other minorities, as well as young migrants and refugees’ background.
In partnership with The New Federalist (TNF) webzine, the idea behind the development of these podcasts is to provide an online pedagogical and educational tool translating the sometimes difficult language used by the European institutions. Therefore, it will provide monthly updates on what is happening and give accessible information and opportunities at the European level that are relevant to the work of youth activists, educators working with disadvantaged groups as well as young people who are curious and want to know more about these issues.

Europe at school activities aims at raising awareness of European citizenship and encouraging active European citizenship among young people.
Based on non-formal education and learning methods, they are carried in the formal school system and in non-formal learning contexts. They foster exchange with young people and the debate between them.
Our volunteers organize activities every week in classes, youth centres, holiday camps, wherever young people are! The history and geography of Europe, the values and symbols of the Union, mobility of young people or the functioning of the institutions: volunteers tackle the central subjects of the European project.
Whether through dialogue or play, interventions are adapted according to the age of the groups and/or the specific requests of each teacher/educator.
