Bringing together the young minds of Europe
Students aged 16-18 from across the EU become an MEP for a day at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. They will debate, negotiate, amend, vote and finally adopt resolutions on real European issues.
Twelve Irish groups take part each year by participating in competitions organised by the European Parliament’s Information Office in Ireland (see our Competitions page for details). A group consists of 24 students accompanied by two teachers. Competition winners receive a subsidy towards the cost of travelling to Strasbourg. In order to take an active part students prepare in advance and come to Strasbourg already acquainted with the issues up for discussion.
