To celebrate the European Day of Solidarity between Generations!
29 April 2013
Participate in this year's edition of generations @ school, open to all schools around Europe!
Win a camera for your class! And if your pupils are aged 15+, you even have a chance to win a great trip to Brussels!
generations @ school invites teachers to organise an activity that brings pupils together with seniors from their communities to explore how dialogue between generations can contribute to a better understanding of each other. This encounter can be a debate on issues of concern to both generations or the launch of a joint project in which old and young cooperate on a more regular basis.
As the European Union has designated 2013 as “European Year of Citizens” this year would be a good opportunity for teachers, pupils and older people to organise on or around the 29 April discussions about Europe, its past, its present and about what old and young can do together for building the Europe of tomorrow.
- What does it mean to be a European citizen?
- Which EU rights have we obtained through the process of European integration?
- How do the European citizens of tomorrow perceive these rights and how do they intend to make use of them?
- What kind of Europe should we pass on to the next generation?
By bringing younger and older people together to create a message about the future of Europe for all generations, you can win a special prize: A class trip to Brussels!!! (only for pupils aged 15+)

- Spend some valuable time with a person from a different generation and enrich one another by sharing knowledge, experiences and skills

- Share different visions about Europe.
- Enter a competition and win prizes.
- Receive a certificate for your participation.
