In the framework of the European Year of Citizens, the European Commission is launching generations@school 2013, a competition which takes the European Day of Solidarity between Generations (29 April) as an opportunity to organise activities in the classroom that bring pupils together with seniors to talk about Europe.
It would be a good opportunity for teachers, pupils and older people to organise on or around the 29 April discussions about Europe, its past, its present and about what old and young can do together for building the Europe of tomorrow:
What does it mean to be a European citizen?
Which EU rights have we obtained through the process of European integration?
How do the European citizens of tomorrow perceive these rights and how do they intend to make use of them?
What kind of Europe should we pass on to the next generation?
By bringing younger and older people together to create a message about the future of Europe for all generations, there is the possibility to win a special prize: A class trip to Brussels! (only for pupils aged 15+)
Deadline for submissions: 30 June.
