Previous editions of Euroscola
Since the launch of the project in 1990, hundreds of thousands of students have spent one day in the premises of the European Parliament, debating, discussing and exchanging views with colleagues in the form of a multilingual European Youth Parliament.
During the COVID-19 pandemic,12 on-site sessions due to take place since March 2020 were cancelled. Online sessions were offered instead to enable students and teachers alike to take part in the Euroscola programme remotely while retaining its educational and interactive nature focused on EU issues.
Euroscola Online was born.
The two new defining elements of Euroscola Online consisted of an exchange with a Vice President of the European Parliament during a Q&A session and the “Innovation Lab”, a laboratory for sharing young participants’ ideas on a European policy area with topic experts.
With the establishment of Interactio as a live-streaming and interactive video platform and the possibility to submit written contribution via Slido, Euroscola acted as a first step to including online participants in hybrid events.
Hybrid Euroscola started with the first regional edition in June 2022 and has become a regular European experience since October 2022.
The number of participants has reached approximately 1000 per event, including around 500/600 students invited to participate from the hemicycle in Strasbourg.
