Description of the project:

The Schuman Project in Italy, on its sixth edition, has reached an impressive participation: 85 secondary schools (167 classes) from the whole Veneto Region with an estimated participation of 4.500 students per year.

  • First phase: Dissemination and TRAINING AID

Wide distribution of training aid (provided by the representation of the European Commission in the Country) to schools and classes participating in the project.

This material aims at helping professors to “speak about EU” with students in order to prepare them for the second and the third phase of the project.

  • Second phase: THE ROUND TABLES

Round tables are organized inside the schools participating in the project. A round table is a public meeting between students and people working in/with EU (EU officers, experts working in the office based in Brussels of Veneto Region, NGOs, etc).

It’s not a “classical” lesson but includes also a role game during which students “play” the role of EU Institutions in the “decision making process” .

During the last edition of Schuman project more than 56 round tables took place all over the regional territory. The number of classes participating in round tables varies between 2 and 3.

During this phase students and teachers are directly involved since they are supposed to elaborate a work in team. The type of work may also vary: it could be a written text, an audio-visual product, an artistic composition, an information product etc.

The aim of the Project:

The main objective of the project is to promote knowledge of the European Union, continuing in secondary schools of Veneto Region the path initiated by Schuman Project.

This Project aims at empowering students and promoting their ability to stimulate personal initiative and independence, encouraging them to develop ideas and opinions and personal criticism.


Description of the project:

SCHUMAN + aims to improve the knowledge of European issues, by organizing a competition which is based on writing an essay on a topic concerning the European Union.


The top three students will be awarded with a travel-study abroad for a period of two weeks to be held during the Summer in a location selected by the student to improve their knowledge of a foreign language. The awards are offered by European Commission Representation in Milan.
