Jesuit European Educational Project (JEEP)

A group of 8 first year high school students is participating from March 16 to March 23 in the Jesuit European Educational Project (JEEP) which this year will celebrate its 20 edition in the Fényi Gyula Jesuit High School (Miskolc, Hungary). 

The JEEP is an international project of European Jesuit schools that, through the simulation of the work of the European Parliament, promotes the European awareness of our students and gives them the opportunity to participate in formal debates using English as a language of communication. However, they are learning to put into practice the processes of a democratic system.

The Jesuit European Educational Project (JEEP) is a simulation exercise of the European Parliament. The basic idea is that each school delegates 8 students and two accompanying teachers for a JEEP session. Each student must choose a specific committee (Health, Environment, Political, Media, etc), and each committee must deal with a particular issue: something that might have to be discussed in the European Parliament as well.  In the months before the actual JEEP session, the students at the participating schools collect information on the committee subjects and exchange information and points of view via e-mail with the rest of the European participants. 


This year the committees and the topics are:

Committee N°1. Foreign Affairs. Topic: Enlargement of the Eu

Committee N°2. Industry, Research and Energy. Topic: Being independent from Russian gas 

Committee N°3. Science and Technology. Topic: Using AI in education

Committee N°4. Environment, Public Health, and Food Safety. Topic: Safe food production

Committee N°5.Human Rights. Topic: Integrating refugees into societies and eliminating no-go zones in cities 

Committee N°6.Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE). Topic: Meeting the 2050 climate goals.

 Committee N°7.Transport and tourism. Topic: The issue of responsible tourism. 

Committee N°8. Democracy and parliamentary law. Topic: Young MPs in the European Parliament.
