Citizenship - Continent gets competitive

16th April 2010 at 01:00

The first 1,000 schools to register for the Spring Day campaign for Europe 2010 will receive a special event kit.

The main aim of the annual campaign, which is funded by the European Union, is to organise activities that help students think about Europe and express their views.

It runs from March 22 to June 30 and is open to all primary and secondary schools across Europe, offering a wide range of activities, competitions, and online and face-to-face discussions.

Its web portal provides teachers with a package of supporting material. Spring Day also helps develop creative learning experiences that encourage the use of ICT.

This year, the campaign is dedicated to European citizenship and fundamental rights. Spring Day activities and competitions will also highlight a number of interesting and relevant themes, such as biodiversity and climate change.
