Understanding Europe is an educational network of 12 countries from Europe which offers counseling for educational projects regarding civic participation and a democratic Europe. The network is supported by the Schwarzkopf Stiftung Young Europe, led by and made for young people. It wishes to empower the youth to be active citizens in our society. The transnational Educational Network Understanding Europe empowers young people in Europe by means of democratic citizenship education and seeks to give them a voice. Station Europe is the coordinator of Understanding Europe in Romania and by connecting our country to this educational network, it aims to spread among schools the knowledge about European values and institutions, the meaning of European citizenship, mass-media and the use of digital technologies to create content for social good.
The educational formats and methods of Understanding Europe are based on the Peer Education approach
The project creates a protected space for learning and collaboration, offering young people opportunities to explore, get to know themselves and better understand other world views and experiences. Through this great network, Understanding Europe Romania has become our new educational project, since October 2021. Within, our team, composed of 18 trainers, 1 Coordinator and 1 Peer Educator is very eager to conduct the UE workshops and activities with young students.
Through Understanding Europe Romania we work to create a network of educators, trainers and coordinators that are able to develop complementary educational models and workshops, helping schools and teachers in their mission.
