Europe matters: a question of values

 
europe des valeurs
 

Teach your pupils Europe’s shared values: freedom of expression, a fair justice system, gender equality, abolition of the death penalty, free elections, diversity/non-discrimination. Have fun taking up challenges as a team and holding discussions, while testing your knowledge on democracy and human rights.

This booklet contains a "goose game" for pupils at the end of primary school and the beginning of secondary school (8-12 year olds) and pages with instructions on how to prepare to play this game of discovery, as well as supplementary information. It enables a class to engage in a shared recreational activity, while at the same time reflecting on the key values that enable people to live together in society.

      Polish National Day

    • The Polish National Day takes place on May 3 in honor of the first Constitution of this country which was adopted on 3 May 1791. The Polish constitution was written by the bourgeois and nobles of the four years diet under the rule of the last king of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stanislas II.

      This constitution was the first constitution voted in Europe. It covered many essential points to reform the institutions and organize the life of the Polish people:

      - it recognized rights to farmers

      - it keeps the hereditary monarchy and its executive power

      - it declared the political rights of representatives

      - it limited the size of the standing army

      - it imposed land management.

      Since then, the 3rd May has become a yearly holiday celebrating the adoption of the Polish constitution.
