This year more than ever, it is fundamental the importance of working for peace in Europe, as we highlight our unity and solidarity with Ukraine.

European Year of Youth 2022
Schuman put forward the idea of a political cooperation in Europe to establish lasting peace between the European nations. This proposal gave rise to the creation of a European Coal and Steel Community, which is now considered the foundation of the European Union, as we know it today.
Make your voice heard! 2022 is the European Year of Youth, shining a light on the importance of European youth to build a better future – greener, more inclusive and digital.

- Why Ukraine wants to become a member of the EU ? Let students talk about the war in Europe. They watch everyday the news, on TV or read on the social networks they prefer. The images are terrible. They fear the war. And they want to share ideas with teachers and schoolmates.
- Invite them to make a Peace Wall on the school library: photos, news, drawings, letters to young people of Ukraine, an open letter to leaders of both countries involved in the conflict.
Send a postcard to a friend or your family. Someone special!
