For the schools that want to learn more about the EU, EYP Belgium offers a crash course about its history and institutions, as well as ways to participate as active citizens.
Understanding Europe is a project by the Schwarzkopf Foundation in cooperation with EYP Belgium. It aims at providing a basic understanding of the European Union and strengthening the political participation of young people in Europe. The four-hour EU Crash Course is meant for pupils of secondary schools across Belgium, from 4th grade onwards. It is offered in English, French or Dutch and can integrate Geography, History or language classes. It includes a quiz, Q&A round, presentations, workshops and debates. Three questions are situated at the core of every course “Why was the EU founded?”, “Who makes EU laws?”, “What possibilities do I have to take part?”.
