The annual Model Council of the European Union debate for secondary schools takes place every year in March.

The Model Council is an annual debate for secondary schools organised by the European Commission Representation in Ireland. It is a simulation of a meeting of the Council of the European Union and involves teams from secondary schools around Ireland, each of which represents an EU Member State. The event allows schools to gain first-hand experience of the EU's decision-making process.

This year's debate took place on 1 March in Dublin Castle on the theme of Multi Annual Financial Framework, the EU Budget for 2021-2027.
