The simulation game 'Giving Europa a Home' offers insights into European law making processes. Participants take on the roles of President of the European Commission, of EU commissioners, foreign ministers, members of the European Council or media representatives and negotiate the creation of a joint 'House of European Cultures'. They can experience and reflect how cultural policy becomes concrete and what potential lies in the cultural diversity of the Union. The simulation game was developed by ifa in cooperation with EUNIC, the network of the European organisations engaging in cultural relations.
Now available in a second, updated edition, the simulation game 'Giving Europe a Home' creates an awareness of the richness and diversity of European cultures and the great potential of culture as an element of the EU's foreign relations. It introduces participants to the workings of this machinery using the young European policy field of culture as an example. They learn about the legislative processes of the Union and try their hand at the difficult balancing act between national and European interests. And if all goes well, together they will give the European Union an exciting new vision - and a concrete project.
