Spring Day for Europe is an initiative aimed at encouraging debate, discussion and reflection among primary and secondary school pupils on the principles, achievements and future of the EU. This year will be "Together since 1957: Schools celebrating Europe".
Spring Day for Europe is a unique opportunity for young people to learn about European issues and make their voices heard, by sharing their vision of Europe with EU experts and personalities.
This year’s edition of Spring Day for Europe, which builds on the success of the previous years, will be held from 26 March – celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome – to 30 June, with a special focus on 9 May, Europe Day.
A variety of events will be organized in schools across Europe such as debates and meetings with experts (EU personalities, local authorities, etc.), on line debates, chats between school pupils from different regions and countries, Europe days, European fairs, etc. Schools are invited to take part in their own way and in line with their own resources.
The Spring Day for Europe website will provide teachers and students with ideas and suggestions for organising an event in their schools as well as with a set of teaching resources.
