Simulation of the European Parliament Plenary Session at Mandoulides Schools
One of the key priorities 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.
To this purpose, Mandoulides Schools, with the approval of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, are holding the “Simulation of the European Parliament Plenary Session” for students of 10th Grade on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 January, 2020. 13 public and private schools from all over Greece and the diaspora take part.
The simulation process consists of the creation of eight committees, to which about 200 students of 10th Grade will be allocated. Each of these committees proposes a bill to vote and receives the corresponding amendments to individual articles from the other committees. The aim is that, through a fruitful, constructive dialogue and after a vote, eight bills will be issued, and they will propose solutions to current problems.
The event is supported by the European Parliament Office in Greece. Members of the European Parliament will be speaking during the event.
The event is supported by the Delegation of the European Commission to Greece, the Office of the European Parliament in Greece and the Europe Direct Information Center (Europe Direct-KEDITH). Media sponsor: Livemedia.gr
