The Outreach Mission activities are divided into two categories:
- Secondary school youth outreach
- Industry, government, civil society and EU missions outreach
The U of A’s EUCE secondary school youth outreach activities will:
- Develop online EU integrated curriculum materials for grade 11 Alberta social science classrooms generated through collaboration between a working group of high school techers, U of A Faculty of Education professors and project Theme Leaders.
- Create a network of secondary school teachers across the province with a high degree of EU awareness and information and a commitment to maintaining and updating these resources.
- Disseminate the resources via Alberta Teachers’ Association annual conference and make them available on the EUCE web page.
- Implement these resources in years two and three.
Industry, government, civil society and EU missions outreach activities
The U of A’s EUCE will engage industry, government, civil society and EU missions by working with the Institute for Public Economics, the Canadian Circumpolar Institute and the Helmholtz-Alberta Initiative who have a proven capacity to draw in and participate with those spheres.
With these collaborators, the EUCE will:
- Publish web-based briefing papers on the EUCE web site aimed at explaining EU and Canada-EU policy issues to a broader public.
- Host a high-level seminar on Canada-EU relations and Arctic strategy, bringing together government, industry, civil society and academics in collaboration with the Canadian Circumpolar Institute.
- Host a high-level seminar on Canada-EU relations related to energy and the environment in collaboration with the Helmholtz-Alberta Initiative and the German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research.
- Develop a panel discussion on Eurozone governance
- Host public talks by prominent government, industry or NGO speakers in an EU public lecture series targeted to the broader public, regional university, media, youth and young scholars.
- Aim to connect our activities to broader audiences in Alberta through regional ‘outreach activities’.
