Friday 1 March 2019: Model Council of the European Union debate
The theme of the 2019 debate is the Multi Annual Financial Framework, the EU Budget for 2021-2027.
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 28 secondary schools, each of which represents an EU Member State. The event allows schools to gain first-hand experience of the EU's decision-making process.
