Simulation of European Parliament Plenary

One of the most basic and essential goals of a Greek school with a European character and a global orientation is to strengthen its European identity and to cultivate a national and European conscience in its students. An important prerequisite to having a European identity is for the youth to come into contact and familiarize themselves with the statutory bodies of the European Union that support democracy and its future.

For this purpose, on Friday, February 17th, 2017, a "Simulation of the European Parliament Plenary " will be organized at Mandoulides Schools, an event approved by the Ministry of Education, for 9th grade students. In the simulation are talking part 8 public and private schools of Greece.

The simulation consists of the formation of eight committees among which more than two hundred 10th grade students will be allocated. Each of these committees will put a bill to the vote and accept corresponding amendments to individual articles proposed by the other committees. The program’s objective is to produce eight bills, following a vote that will provide solutions to burning issues.

The event is supported by the European Parliament Information Office and the European Commission Representation in Greece. During the event MEP’s will speak and schools that participated in the EP SCHOOL AMBASSADORS program will be honored.

The event will be taped. Parents wishing to do so may attend the event.
