The PEL is an event bringing together high school students from all over Europe to encourage them to think about future issues, to discuss them, and to propose solutions.
Our goal is to make participants aware of the importance of the European Union, inform them about the functioning of its institutions and promote European values.
We want to reach a wide audience, which is why the entire project is followed by many media.
The PEL is a project that is growing and improving year by year, whether in terms of activities, number of participants or scope of the project itself.
All interested students from the selected schools can now apply for the „Parlement européen des lycéens“ 2021. The number of places available per school is determined by the organization committee according to the quantity and quality of these applications.
The organization committee informs the participating schools and students, how many places have been allocated to the school and which students have been chosen.
Additional data from the selected students is required. Participants define, among other things, their PEL preferences (for example which parties they wish to represent in the simulation of the European legislative process).
The organization committee evaluates the follow-up forms and inform the participants about the results.
The „Parlement européen des lycéens“ 2021 begins with an event bringing together all participants, organizers and many guests in a digital conference.
Students participate in the simulation of the European legislative process and the other points of the PEL 2021 program.
The „Parlement européen des lycéens“ 2021 ends with a plenary session bringing together all participants, organizers and many guests in a digital conference.
The PEL is an event bringing together high school students from all over Europe to encourage them to think about future issues, to discuss them, and to propose solutions. Usually held at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the PEL 2021 will take place in digital form due ti the global Covid-19 pandemic.
The students simulate a legislative process. Each pupil will be placed in one of the political parties of the European Parliament which he will have to represent during the plenary session. A precise theme will be chosen beforehand and a law proposal for the simulated European directive will be written. Each party then has the opportunity to present various amendments with the aim of subsequently obtaining a majority vote. Preparatory work is expected in advance within the parties in order to be able to defend the proposed amendments and to facilitate possible alliances with other parties.
In the second phase of the PEL 2021 the students change roles and this time attend a simulation of the Council of the EU, which aims to train the participants in international negotiations. The EU Council will focus on the directive developed in Phase 1 and will also deal with budgetary matters.
Participants will discuss the future of the European Union. During this last phase of the PEL 2021, students will be able to share their personal opinions.
