MEET - Movement towards a European Education Trust - is the 8th European Citizens Initiative for a “High Quality European Education for All”. MEET believes that Europe’s future depends on Education, how to educate citizens, how they learn. Common education goals reflecting European basic values opening the minds of the future Europeans children growing up with tolerance for languages and cultures, celebrating diversity should be at the heart of a solution to today’s challenges. MEET called the creation of a multi-stakeholder platform on Education - not so much to discuss more about education but rather bring existing recommendations together and see how best to implement them by creating a European educational model, accessible to all children and teachers in all Member States.
MEET’s intention was to use the European Citizen’s Initiative to raise awareness about a quality, pluralistic educational model for all Europeans. Also about European schooling leading to the European Baccalaureate, a system of European Education started in 1953 by parents and teachers and which has produced already syllabi created by teacher from all over Europe and approved by the Ministries of education of all member states and their inspectors.
