The Network EUrope at School aims to strengthen the importance of European citizenship education in Austrian schools. The goals are to create helpful framework conditions and to foster students’ interest to actively engage with Europe and the European Union in order to develop a (self-)reflective understanding of Europe and European citizenship competencies.

Project website:

European citizenship education is an essential component of citizenship education. The examination of the European Union as well as pan-European issues and topics are both part of the teaching principle of citizenship education and legally implemented in the curricula of history and social studies/citizenship education (sec I and sec II).

Project partner

The network is an initiative of the Ministry of Education, the Representation of the European Commission, the Liaison Office of the European Parliament in Austria and is supervised by Zentrum polis.
