Your Europe Your Say

Our school has been selected to attend a special plenary session of the European Economic and Social Committee next April.
If you want to know more about it you can visit their website
Three students have already been selected to go to Brussels accompanied by a teacher. The goal of this session is to learn about the Committee, get to debate a specific topic with the Committee's other "extraordinary members" – young people of the same age from all the 27 EU countries – and work with them to hammer out a consensus. We'll all be working together in a multicultural environment. The students will get to discuss Europe and a host of other issues. There will be opportunities to find out about other cultures. And the lucky students who attend the session will come back home with some unforgettable memories.
In order to prepare for this visit, next Monday 22nd, our sc)cC and 1BacD students and will inform them about the Committee and about this special session.
We will need the cooperation of all of the students in these two groups to discuss the suggested topic and propose amendments to it. The topic is the prevention of the damage alcohol may cause.
We will make three groups representing the three sectors in the EESC.
Keep checking this blog. We will inform about everything here!
