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.
