The second edition of this joint public diplomacy project reaches out to over 10,000 students.

Ambassadors and diplomats from the EU and its member states based in Singapore visited 27 education institutions across the island to give talks about the EU, touching on topics such as the EU’s history, institutions, and their growing role in the face of the global health crisis. Encounters took place in virtual as well as hybrid formats.

‘EU at Your School’ aims to promote 21st Century competencies by developing global awareness and cross-cultural skills amongst the students and to instil an appreciation of different cultures and languages by introducing them to the diversity of Europe. The project builds on the positive experience of the inaugural edition in 2019.
