The Parlement européen des lycéens (PEL) is a project bringing together high school students from all over Europe, encouraging them to reflect upon the future of the European Union, to discover the functioning of the European institutions, to debate on international issues, and to propose solutions to European challenges.In-depth look
Our objective. Our goal is to make participants aware of the importance of the European Union, inform them about the functioning of its institutions and promote European values.
An ambitious initiative. We want to reach a wide audience, which is why we bring together high school students from over 7 countries and help them to overcome language and cultural barriers.
Our future. The PEL is a project that is growing and improving year by year, whether in terms of activities, number of participants or scope of the project itself.
