Understanding Europe Belgium

Understanding Europe is active in Belgium for over 5 years and since then the project is growing steadily. We cooperate with schools in all regions of the country and deliver high quality civic European education to hundreds of students every year. We offer to conduct the EU Crash Course in English, Dutch or French and in an analogue or digital format, always for free! Understanding Europe Belgium operates as a project of the European Youth Parliament Belgium.

“In Belgium, which is perceived by many as the heart of Europe, young people want to be aware of how the European Union works and how they can be active citizens. It is mandatory for them to vote in the European Elections so it's crucial that by the time students leave the high school, they are able to make an informed decision. Understanding Europe is a perfect complement to the curriculum ensuring that pupils' desire for the EU knowledge is fulfilled.”
