How many member states? What is the history of Europe and what are its symbols? What has been achieved and what is the future of the European Union?
To all of these questions, the Centre d'Information sur les Institutions Européennes (CIIE) provides clear and precise answers in a language that is easy to understand, thanks to the "Eurovoyageur" presentation. This activity, free of charge, is proposed to primary schools in the CIIE's facilities located at the Lieu d'Europe in Strasbourg.

In a very interactive way, the speaker will speak about topics such as the symbols, the history and the geography of the European Union as well as the flags, the capitals, traditions and characteristics of the 28 member states. During the second part of "Eurovoyageur", the children will - divided into four different groups - discover the 28 member states of the European Union thanks to a game with questions. The winning team will get the Eurovoyageur diploma and additional documents about Europe will be distributed to all the participants. The Eurovoyageur map used during the presentation is offered to the participating class.
The "Eurovoyageur" presentation is carried out by volunteers especially trained for the CIIE's educational tools. It has been realized more than 4000 times in primary schools in Alsace since 1998.

      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.
