The winning schools of the photo contest #LaTuaEuropa

The new school year has started and many girls and boys are getting ready for the challenges and opportunities that their schools will offer in 2023/2024.

EU FACTOR – a project funded by the European Union to communicate the contribution of cohesion policies to the lives of citizens, led by Innovacoop – will also make its contribution to liven up the return to the desks. Partners of EU FACTOR are Legacoop Emilia-Romagna, Legacoop Emilia Ovest, Sunset, TRMedia, Cooperdiem, Tuttifrutti, Area Ag.

As part of the photo contest #LaTuaEuropa, promoted by the EU FACTOR project, some schools in Emilia-Romagna competed to win the contest prizes.

The award ceremony, held last June at Chiostri di San Pietro in Reggio Emilia, showcased, in particular, the photographs of two schools: the Liceo Leonardo da Vinci of Casalecchio di Reno and the Liceo Sanvitale of Parma, which were awarded for having developed highly topical and thought-provoking themes such as sustainable mobility and the union between EU Member States. In addition, both classes showed great commitment and willingness to explore European topics and have their say on the future of the European Union.

As a prize, class 5AU (a.s. 2023/2024) of the Liceo Leonardo da Vinci will be the guest in Rome on 25 September of Europa Experience, an interactive miniature European Parliament dedicated to the former President of the European Parliament David Sassoli, who passed away in 2022, and who distinguished himself for having taken extraordinary measures for the EU during his term of office with a strong focus on EU values.

Through a multimedia tour, immersive installations and an interactive role-playing game, Europa Experience will give students the opportunity to discover how the European Union works, its impact on the lives of its citizens and how citizens themselves can be involved in European decisions.

Class 5B (a.s. 2023/2024) of the Liceo Sanvitale of Parma will be the guest on 21 September of TRMedia, partner of the EU FACTOR project, in the TV studios of Modena, with the aim of getting to know the behind-the-scenes of TV and creating new content on current EU issues that are conveyed through Cohesion Clips, the programme that has been broadcasted weekly since a year on TRMedia’s TV channels, on the website and on all the project’s social networks (Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin and YouTube).

The activities aimed at girls and boys that EU FACTOR will carry out throughout the month of September can be viewed on the website and on EU FACTOR’s social networks.
