European Union – Raising awareness in schools about the European enterprise (15 February 2016)

Harlem Désir, Minister of State for European Affairs, launched the second “Back to School/Retour à l’Ecole” programme at the Lycée Polyvalent Maximilien Perret in Alfortville.

This programme to raise awareness of the European enterprise will continue until 9 May 2016, Europe Day, in cooperation with Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, Minister of National Education, Higher Education and Research. It gives pupils the opportunity to meet officials from the European institutions who studied in the same establishments as them, and gives a better understanding of what European citizenship consists of. Under Harlem Désir’s impetus, the first programme last year was a great success, with more than 100 visits and 8,000 pupils met by officials.

Harlem Désir answered pupils’ questions about the European Union and explained his work serving Europe.
