EU in my school

Partner Regions and local EU-funded projects are teaming up with us and with volunteering schools, to make pupils experience Europe on the ground!

Under the “EU in my school” initiative, together with partner Regions, EU-funded projects, volunteering schools and local interlocutors, we co-create memorable experiences whereby school pupils aged 3-19 years can explore Europe in direct connection with their local reality. Field trips, inspiring encounters, games, creative contests… #EUinmyschool revolves around activities that are both fun and educational.

Each #EUinmyschool journey starts with an activity on the ground, linked to tangible EU-funded achievements nearby (visits to heritage sites, bike tours, treasure hunts in nature reserves, etc.) Then comes the time to make the most of the experience, using creative means of expression (written stories, painting, drawing, photo, or video).
The final step involves proudly sharing with peers and families, as part of exhibitions, schools events or friendly contests.

Initiated in Italy and subsequently transferred to other EU countries, ASOC engages students in monitoring the effectiveness of EU cohesion policy investments via the use of public open data. The EU pilot project has ended, but several Member States continue on their own initiative, with some technical support from the European Commission. “EU in my school” is characterized by its experiential dimension and has a wider scope and target group. On a case-by-case basis, it may be combined with activities under the frame of ASOC.
