By voting in the European elections, people living in the EU get to choose the 705 members that will represent them in the European Parliament until 2024. As European citizens, no matter where we live or how we make our living or spend our time, the EU has an impact on our daily lives. Learners are reminded that voting means having a say in the policies that shape your daily life. This time it is not only about voting, but also about persuading others to vote too. It’s the moment to make your voice heard. Learners will have to research which issues are at stake in the European elections.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
