European Union – Participation for the first time by France in the "Back-to-School" program (April 17 to June 7, 2015)


On the initiative of Mr. Harlem Désir, Minister of State for European Affairs, France will participate this year for the first time in the "Back-to-School" program created by the European Commission in 2007.

French officials from the European institutions were invited to meet with the students of the French schools that they themselves attended. Within a week, 180 of them agreed to come and talk, in a meaningful way, about Europe to young people and to talk about the European integration project as seen from the inside.

With the full agreement of the Ministry of National Education, this program will take place from April 27 to June 7, 2015, and will therefore contribute to the organization of Europe Month in France.
