Aim of the Assistance
The People 2 People Programme is one of the three strands of the Civil Society Facility of the Directorate General Enlargement of the European Commission.
It intends to offer to individuals and organisations from the beneficiary countries and territories the possibility to visit EU institutions, as well as relevant EU platform organisations, or whenever relevant for the topic of the study visits, also other European, international or national organisations in order to familiarise themselves with EU structures, policy making process, programmes, policies and good practices.
The aim of this study tour is to give participants the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the EU policies and activities in the field of education. This study tour further intends to offer participants exchange and networking opportunities in a respectful atmosphere among themselves and with European-level as well as Member State-based civil society organisations active in this field.
The study visit is open for the participation of several representatives of civil society organisations active in this field from each of the candidate and potential candidate countries and territories to EU enlargement. In particular, civil society organisations working on topics related to education like associations of teachers, associations of parents, people working in the field of pedagogy, as well as organisations fighting against discrimination at school and improvement of social cohesion are much welcome.
The event will also focus on the tools available when providing education in multicultural societies with examples of good practices coming from organisations working in this field and/or other countries confronted with the same challenges.
