About Us

What are we about?

We strive to create a continuum of education from Junior Infants to 6th year on active European citizenship. We have already developed an educational programme at primary level, My Big Friendly Guide to the European Union.

Discuss, Argue, Build the EU (DABtheEU) is an innovative, teacher and student-friendly teaching and learning programme on Ireland and the EU for 13 to 18 year olds.  It was developed by third level academics and secondary school teachers. It aims at fostering awareness, intellectual curiosity and critical thinking about the EU, Ireland’s place within it and how to engage as active European citizens. We work as part of the Hub in Active European Citizenship which organises many events, competitions for schools and students as well as training courses for teachers. Don’t hesitate to connect with us!
