EU for Schools and Youth 4 February 2011 Team Europe Junior
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFyywfHbj3M What has Europe ever done for us?
EU Back to School What is it?  EU and national civil servants go back to former schools in their country and talk with the students about their experience with Europe First time in 2007 during the German Presidency. Objective To  make European politics more accessible to young people and at the same time encourage youth to participate more actively in the democratic life of Europe. http://ec.europa.eu/news/eu_explained/110117_en.htm
EU Back to School Big success in Germany – over 400 civil servants participated, appreciated by the students, schools and participants  “ Back to schools”  in other countries followed, now the programme is in its fifth year In 2010 there were 10 EU countries involved, around 1000 EU civil servants went back to their schools and talked to almost 100 000 about their experience with Europe
EU Back to School Training seminar organised for EU civil servants before going back to their former schools They learn : how to design a presentation for pupils how to answer and trigger questions what to do if asked for an interview what are the local hot EU issues … etc.
EU Back to School Vice-President Viviane Reding  in her former school in Luxembourg, 2010 Prince Constantijn,  advisor of Commissioner Kroes in school in The Hague, 2010 Commissioner,  Kristalina Georgieva in school in Elena, Bulgaria, 2010
Now
How to be a good communicator Good preparation will make you confident - so prepare well This is a unique opportunity for you – enjoy it, be enthusiastic and smile from time to time during your presentation Be persuasive - u se concrete examples from your country
How to be a good communicator To me Europe brought the following :  Democracy and freedom Studies abroad (Erasmus programme) Possibility to travel – no borders, single currency, cheaper flight tickets Cheaper communication across boarders – lower roaming charges Job in another country Etc.
How to be a good communicator Be a good discussion partner - no lying please – nobody can know everything Speak at the audience level – neither too sophistically, nor too basic Inspire the audience to want to know more about the EU Most importantly be yourself
How to animate your presentation EU quiz with prizes Show a short video (e.g. from EU Tube) Show them “the latest EU news" (e.g. on the EC Representation, Europe Direct or Commissioner’s blog websites) Ask rhetoric questions
A tip to start off Find out what the pupils know about Europe through an EU-quiz  (take some prizes)  What are the EU countries? The EU candidate countries? How many countries use Euro?   Who is your Commissioner?  How many MEPs there are from Bulgaria?   Etc.
Where to look for  ?
Sharing teaching material about the European Union   http://europa.eu/teachers-corner/index_bg.htm Teachers’ corner
Teachers’ corner? A whole range of teaching material produced by the European Commission and other EU bodies. Classified by language, students age group  Products adhere to quality standards.
