On May 2-4, training sessions for senior pupils took place at the Scientific Library of Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University. The educational project “EU For You” has implemented Jean Monnet Euroclub, with the full support of the EU Delegation in Ukraine, promotion of the EU Information Center of Chernivtsi University, and in partnership with the Charity Organization “ProOsvita”.

The purpose of this project was to create and enhance the knowledge of the younger generation of Chernivtsi on the idea of United Europe, the European Union and European integration of Ukraine.

“This project is a logical continuation of the European School, implemented in November 2017, supported by Chernivtsi Regional Department of Education. But in this case we have received support from the EU Delegation in Ukraine. The project is relevant because, as we move to the EU, we must know at least elementary about it: from what it began, how it was formed, and what place now it occupies in the international system. I am convinced that such knowledge is necessary for a modern citizen,” – summarizes Head of Euroclub, Omelian Tarnavskyi.

About 80 participants from schools / grammar schools and colleges in Chernivtsi were involved in the events. Each of them received a certificate certifying participation in the training, and the most active were encouraged by souvenir products from the EU Delegation in Ukraine.
