The winners of the student competition “For an ever more democratic European Union”, organised by the Historical Archives of the European Union together with Città Metropolitana di Firenze, will be awarded in a public ceremony at Villa Salviati. The competition represents the final stage of the educational programme “The European Elections: For an Active Democracy”, which involved more than 30 classes from 15 upper secondary schools in Florence. Thanks to the HAEU trainers, participants learnt about the history of European integration and the functioning of EU institutions and took part in a workshop focusing on three topics: The institutional reform in the European Union, the European school of the future and the needed actions to tackle climate change. In order to participate in the competition, each class was asked to present an election manifesto for 2019 European Parliament Elections, gathering all students’ proposals to shape the future of Europe. As usual, the last HAEU Educational Programme involved some former Members of the European Parliament, who participated in some of the workshops thanks to the partnership between the Archives and the European Parliament Former Members Association.
