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.

      Czech Republic National Day

    • On their National Day, Czechs commemorate the independence of the Czechoslovak Republic vis-à-vis the Empire of Austria-Hungary obtained in 1918. Czechs and Slovaks created together Czechoslovakia, becoming independent on 28 October 1918. Then, during World War II, the country was under German domnation. In 1948, a Communist putsch led the country into isolation for 40 years before returning to democracy in 1989, during the "velvet revolution."
      On 1 January 1993, the Czech Republic split from Slovakia to create two independent states: the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
