Why Europe Alive?

European cooperation is rarely made  tangible and exciting to students by textbooks and traditional teaching. That is why we have created the project Europe Alive.

Europe Alive is a series of Edu-LARPs – educational live action role playing games. Our innovative learning method gives

high school students a closer understanding of EU institutions, and empower them to look behind simplified communication about the EU.​
