"The YourEP Experiment - Key Lessons for Inclusive & Accessible Political Simulations"

#YourEPsimulation: 1st Publication!

Dear Members and Partners,

Are you interested in innovative, non-formal AND inclusive EU & political education? Encouraging political simulation organisers to make their own events accessible to a wider, more diverse audience? Or simply curious of how YES Forum and its partners adapt "traditional" methods to foster Social Inclusion?

Then here's a must-read for you: "The YourEP Experiment - Key Lessons for Inclusive & Accessible Political Simulations"!

These few pages present how the YES Forum, thanks to the cooperation with its 9 partners and diverse young participants themselves, designed the #YourEPsimulation of the European Parliament. It focuses on the key aspects that were explored to make this political simulation Inclusive - regardless of participants’ personal backgrounds and difficulties - and Accessible - regardless of participants’ prior knowledge of or interest in politics and the European Union.

Feel free to spread the word! For more information, you can check the project's website.

2018 Policy Event - "Why so serious? EU politics can be fun!"

Moreover, our Policy Event this year, organised in Brussels on 21-22 November, will adress the theme "Why so serious? EU politics can be fun!".

The conference will conclude our #YourEPsimulation project, which focused on using an extremely potent method for political education – a simulation of the European Parliament – to make it inclusive and accessible to youngsters facing any kind of difficulties and/or with no prior interest in the European Union.

Join us to discover our results, engage with our young participants and policy-makers, and discuss how such “inclusive and accessible political games” can contribute to bridging the gap between the European Union and youth!

A Draft Programme is available here, and Invitations will be sent later on. In the meantime, don't forget to Save the Date!
