60 Ideas for Europe

To create a EU consciousness and therefore have the coming generation of adults fully involved within European events, it would be a great thing to generalise exchange programs at all educational levels. This would be one way of developing relations between citizens of EU. Such exchange could prepare children to going later on an Eramus exchange program, or at least it would give children who will not then attend University, the opportunity to visit another European country. School trips to visit another school could be considered as an efficient way of developing EU consciousness for primary, secondary schools as well as colleges.

Educational projects could be developed between schools just as it already exist in languages classes sometimes. Each school could have European partners schools with which they could organise trips, writing projects, such as pen friends.

  1. Young students and are eager to be in real contact within educational projects with students from different countries. They learn easily one or two foreign languages and they are very confident in their potential to communicate about their aims, their life, their future as Europeans. But if we consider that this common experience should be within exchanges and involving schools, we have to think on training teachers in order to support the students activities.

  2. Des échanges scolaires…C’est parfait! Mais avec quels “moyens” si l’on veut éviter une culture scolaire européenne à deux voire trente six vitesses???

    Au sein d’un même Etat, déjà, les ressources allouées au système scolaire sont parfois très différentes d’une entité fédérée à l’autre!

    De quels moyens disposent aussi ces associations de droit ou de fait d’enseignants et de directeurs d’établissements scolaires, sinon de cotisations volontaires des Membres?

    Ne pourrait-on, plus raisonnablement d’un point de vue financier, encourager les échanges linguistiques et culturels entre institutions scolaires grâce à l’outil informatique: jumelages ,échanges d’outils et d’expériences pédagogiques… à l’aide d’une d’une web cam?

    Une politique d’incitation active devrait être développée par les instances européennes en cette matière: création d’un réseau d’écoles dotées d’un label européen, promotion et diffusion des réalisations, récompenses des acteurs ( sous forme de voyages!!!), par ex.
