EPAS - How it works

It aims to raise awareness among upper secondary school students from different educational, social and geographical backgrounds about European parliamentary democracy, the role of the European Parliament and European values. The course also aims to encourage interactions between students and MEPs and to provide young people with useful information on training, traineeship and job opportunities. The network of ambassador schools also fosters relationships with schools from other European countries. 

The European Parliament Ambassador School Program (EPAS) involves schools from all over Europe and consists of an annual training course which will culminate in the ceremony for the delivery and affixing of the Ambassador School plaque of the European Parliament

Ambassador schools are invited to organize an initiative to involve the school community and possibly citizens around 9 May (Europe Day). On this occasion, the MEPs of the electoral district to which the school refers participate in the ceremony of affixing the plaque and deliver the parchments for teachers and students awarded the title of "ambassadors of the European Parliament".

Ambassador schools also have the possibility to participate in competitions which allow the winners to be protagonists of simulation days of plenary sessions of the European Parliament in Strasbourg within the framework of the EUROSCOLA programme.

Furthermore, in October 2022 “Esperienza Europa - David Sassoli” was inaugurated in Rome. The "Europa Experience" centers, opened in several EU capitals, allow millions of visitors to immerse themselves in an interactive journey across Europe to discover its institutions, the functioning of European democracy and strengthen the sense of European citizenship.

We want Italian students to benefit as much as possible from this interactive space. For this reason, schools will have the opportunity to book guided tours, participate in the interactive simulation of the work of the European deputies, use the conference room for events on European issues.
