Signed Memorandum of Cooperation for the implementation of project “How well do you know the European Union?”

Ministry of Education, Ministry of Sports, Office for European Integration, Television Vijesti and Centre for Civic Education (CCE), signed Memorandum of Cooperation for implementation of project How well do you know the European Union?

The project How well do you know the European Union? has in its focus production of quiz for high school students that will be broadcast on TV Vijesti. Through that interactive and creative form, it will contribute to the improvement of interest, information and knowledge of high school students about the EU, its functioning and public policies, accession conditions, as well as culture, economy, natural beauties and contents offered by the EU. Furthermore, the project contributes to the strategies and existing efforts of the Government of Montenegro, the European Commission and civil society in raising awareness about the importance of European integration of Montenegro. The target group are high school students, aged 16 to 18, from 21 out of 24 Montenegrin municipalities, who are ready to learn about the EU and to promote Europeanisation in Montenegro. The CCE had previously worked with different partners in two series of this quiz, in 2014 and 2017, and the experience points to the need for continuation of the project.

The winning team of the quiz will be awarded a study visit to Brussels, and valuable prizes will be provided for the second and third place.

Lead project organisation is the CCE, with the financial support of the Ministry of Sports (Youth Directorate) and the Office for European Integration and the Public Information Sector on the European Union and EU accession process of the General Secretariat of the Government (within the EU4ME project financed by the EU Delegation and implemented by UNDP), in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and TV Vijesti.
