The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is inviting secondary school children from the 27 EU Member States to take part in a simulated youth plenary session to see how the EESC decision-making process works in relation to a specific subject. Schools wishing to take part must register online through the EESC’s internet site before 30 November 2011.
The selected schools will then choose three students in their pre-final year of secondary education (aged 16 years) to represent them, as well as a teacher who will accompany them. These people will have to be able to express themselves in English or French. The event will take place in Brussels at the headquarters of the European Economic and Social committee from 26 to 28 April 2012.
The EESC will pay the travel and accommodation expenses of the students and accompanying teacher.
