- "A flag for Europe" for schools

The "A flag for Europe" initiative is a further occasion in which the City of Venice meets young students, new voters for the next European elections, and invites them to take an active part in the electoral process.
During these four days, on the 18th and 19th in Mestre and on the 25th and 27th in Venice, the President of the Municipal Council Ermelinda Damiano will personally deliver the European flag to the secondary schools of the second degree. With this symbolic gesture, the City of Venice intends to involve young people for European elections and to stimulate active participation in European citizenship.

- Cycle of meetings "At school with Europe"

Inserted in the broader program of initiatives organized for "Primavera dell'Europa", the series of meetings "At school with Europe" is held between January and March 2019 in numerous secondary schools of the second degree of the lagoon and neighboring territory. The meetings deal with European issues ranging from European Union priorities, European institutions, European citizenship and the future of Europe. Since they are oriented towards classes IV and V the events are interactive and they stimulate discussion on the proposed themes and on the forthcoming European Parliament elections. The aim is also to investigate the nature of European institutions and policies, opportunities for young people and transnational mobility.
These meetings are included in the calendar of events on the Primavera dell'Europa website.
