Highlights of the ES70 Conference

Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the European School System

In the world of European education, the European School System is synonymous with excellence and quality. Established 70 years ago, the system has remained committed to offering high-quality education to its students. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Schola Europaea organizes the SE+ED 27: Education to the Power of 27 conference in the ES Luxembourg 1. The aim of the conference is to bring together all 36 European Schools to celebrate the European School System’s achievements and discuss the way forward.

Greeting of Ms Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission

Greeting of Mr Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for Budget and Administration

Keyspeaches, panel discussions and video interventions will take place under the title THE EUROPEAN EDUCATION AREA AND THE EUROPEAN SCHOOLS.

The European School system has come a long way since its founding in 1953, but the focus on multilingualism and European cooperation remains strong. With its unique approach to education and emphasis on diversity, the system continues to prepare students for success in an increasingly globalized world.

The European School system has a significant impact on European education. It has contributed to the development of a European identity, where people from different countries can come together and work towards a common goal. This sense of unity and cooperation is vital in today’s world, where globalization has brought people closer than ever before.

Congratulations to the first European School, ES Luxembourg 1 and the whole ES-system on its 70th anniversary, and here’s to many more years of excellence in education!
