Eurovoyageur

 
 

An activity for primary schools

 
Carte de lHow 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 concrete 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 address 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 by a game of questions and answers. 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.

      International Day in Support of Victims of Torture

    • Torture seeks to annihilate the victim’s personality and denies the inherent dignity of the human being. The United Nations has condemned torture from the outset as one of the vilest acts perpetrated by human beings on their fellow human beings.

      Torture is a crime under international law. According to all relevant instruments, it is absolutely prohibited and cannot be justified under any circumstances. This prohibition forms part of customary international law, which means that it is binding on every member of the international community, regardless of whether a State has ratified international treaties in which torture is expressly prohibited. The systematic or widespread practice of torture constitutes a crime against humanity.

      On 12 December 1997, by resolution 52/149, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 26 June the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, with a view to the total eradication of torture and the effective functioning of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, (resolution 39/46), annex, which entered into force on 26 June 1987.
