Schools for Europe Community College II

Brief description

The ACC International Programme Office organized the Schools for Europe Community College II from the 9th to the 16th of February 2003.

The aims of this activity were to gather a number of young Europeans (30) to discuss the possibility of developing a European non-formal, decentralized school-system.

Their task was to compile, compose and print articles and previous documents and results of the work done within the ACC and related initiatives as the Youth2002 in recent years.

The ACC aimed with this activity at opening an even more public debate about the matter.

The concrete outcome of this activity was the release of an issue of the AWE-Journal (Association for World Education) with the working title “Schools for Europe II” making this way a further step on the discussion about the creation of the “First European Community College“.
Venue: Højskolen Østersøen, Aabenraa, Denmark. Flensborgvej 48-50, DK-6200 Aabenraa. Northern Schleswig. 25 kms north of the the Danish-German border.

Journal of World Education
Young people among the participants, organisers and volunteers of the Youth2002 gathered in this journal their experiences with the European residential school format.

From one of the articles: "It's a place where the biggest contribution is brought not by the teachers but by each and everyone of the participants. Each of us enriches the environment with our own culture and traditions, wit our own mentality and way of life." (Mihaela Alexandrescu, Romania)
