Dear All,

Here I would like to call your attention to the
Spring Day for Europe 2007 project

Spring Day for Europe is an annual citizen-driven
initiative aimed to encourage young people to debate,
reflect, learn and make their voices heard on European
issues. Spring Day, which has already proved to be
a success over the past four years, is already a
fully-integrated event in the European school calendar.

It has been set up to stimulate interest and debate
about the principles, achievements and future of the
EU, Spring Day for Europe is a unique opportunity
for pupils to meet, exchange ideas and share their
hopes and concerns with EU experts and political

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Treaties
of Rome. For this reason, “Together since 1957:
Schools celebrating Europe” is the chosen theme
for Spring Day 2007.

This anniversary is an opportunity to communicate
about what the EU has achieved so far and to intensify
the debate on the future of Europe, a future matching
the needs and expectations of young generations.

The new edition of Spring Day for Europe will be held
from 26 March – celebrating the 50th anniversary of
the signature of the Rome Treaties – to 30 June 2007,
with a special focus on 9 May, which is Europe Day.
These dates are the two highlights of the event intended
to all schools in the EU, as well as accessing and
candidate countries.

A wide-range of events will take place in schools across
Europe such as competitions, exhibitions, debates,
conferences and online chats between students from
different countries and political leaders at European,
national and local levels. Primary and secondary schools
are invited to take part in their own way, in line with
their own resources.

In order to facilitate and encourage schools to participate,
this website provides teachers and students with ideas
and suggestions to organise events, as well as pedagogical
resources, activities in the classroom, pedagogical games
and educational tools.

Communicating, listening and connecting with young
citizens in the European Union are our primary concerns.

By taking part in Spring Day for Europe 2007, you will
contribute to celebrating Europe!

Further information can be obtained at the official website
but also feel free to contact me with regard to this
promising project.

Thank you for your attention.

Warm regards,
Janos Blasszauer
