AWAREUAwarEU - European Awareness is a project financed within the Call Social Inclusion through Education, Training and Youth of the Key Action 3 Initiatives for Policy Innovation of Erasmus Plus


Starting from Italy, Portugal, Spain, France and the UK,
the project aims at developing a model work programme to be spread in all EU countries


At the basis of the project, the success of the European Awareness Days developed by CesUE as an innovative training and information event for citizens, based on the musical recital "Europe: what a Passion!" which tells the story of he European Integration as a tormented love story.

AwarEU project brought around Europe the European Awareness Days and the Musical, representing it in each country through an original version created by its authors. The tour ended in the prestigious Odéon Theater in Paris on 5 February 2018. AwarEU thus brought the format into five languages and five European capitals, reaching almost 3,000 citizens (including representatives of pro-European associations, local and national authorities) involving them in a broad discussion about past, present and future prospects of the European Union with the experts of our network!

Tour events:

In addition to the tour, the project partners are finalizing, in each of the own respective languages a distance learning environment on the European Union (VLEU - Virtual Learning Environment on the EU) which will offer four multimedia courses in five languages:

  • a online course on the history of the EU, totally free, based on videoclips taken from the musical recital and on its communication logic;
  • a short European alfabetization course to help all citizens to understand the fundamental principles of the European Union;
  • a online course for journalists;
  • a online course for teachers.

The website will also host a Blog, a Newsletter and other interactive features to follow the project's participants and keep them updated on EU issues.
