What is EPAS?

The European Parliament Ambassador School Programme (EPAS) aims at increasing students’ awareness of European parliamentary democracy, the role of the European Parliament and European values. It also encourages them to actively participate in EU democratic processes. It targets students with diverse educational, social and geographical backgrounds.

Learning Resources

Engaging, active, structured sessions about the EU, the European Parliament and how it affects the lives of young people in the UK and the EU.

Taking Action

Young people are challenged to run activities promoting discussion, debate and activism about the issues that affect them and the EU.

Accreditation and Support

There is a network of over 1,500 schools participating, across the EU (and soon the UK). You will be guided by Involver to complete your activities and gain EPAS accreditation.

"We in St Mary’s College are keen to encourage young people to become active citizens everywhere. Right now, my students are working on a debate for the Model Council of the EU. We twin with schools in other countries and we could do so with your schools when you are up and running!"

"EPAS is a game changer for my students. Through taking part in EPAS they are actively involved in democracy and so much more likely to be committed active citizens once they leave school. They gain in confidence and, most importantly for me, they learn to stand up for and defend what they believe in."

"Taking part in the EPAS programme has only reinforced and given me a greater appreciation as to how important the EU values of solidarity, unity and diversity are in today's world of ever increasing uncertainty. "
