Many interests II
the Common Agricultural Policy between economic, social and ecological interests
The project “Many Perspectives – One Policy” conducts 10 project days introducing students from ordinary and vocational schools to the European representation of interests.
The project is co-financed by the Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbank and all events are free of charge for the participating schools and teachers.
Simulation games for students
In every national and international policy, many opposing interests are clashing when it comes to the reformation or the adoption of a new law package. In the special case of the upcoming negotiations on the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) after 2020 ecological, economic, societal and social interests, as well as different perceptions on the objective of agriculture, come together.
During the project days to the European representation of interests, the students take the roles of interest group members after a short introduction to the topic. Initially, they develop a position and strategy with their fellow members within the interest group and then they come together in a common session with the other interest groups in order to negotiate. After the negotiations, a thorough reflection takes place to not only discuss the simulation game but also to get answers to the question where the law and directive initiatives come from within the EU.
