École européenne de Strasbourg

European Actions

The European Actions Project, up and running for the last four years, is intended to bring the European School of Strasbourg and its pupils into contact with the Strasbourg-based institutions (whether they are part of the European Union or the Council of Europe). Whether to raise awareness of the European construction and European values or to encourage remembrance, this project makes the School’s pupils stakeholders in the present and future of the European process.

A number of large-scale actions have been or will be undertaken, as we can see from the charts that summarise the academic years 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. Such actions are part and parcel of the school project, since it opens up the School to its European environment.
