From 21 to 24 May 2023, the European Parliament together with the University of Barcelona’s European Observatory on Memories (EUROM) and the Altiero Spinelli Institute is organising a European School on Memories. The Young European Federalists (JEF-Europe) are invited to send a group of participants to the seminar.

The seminar takes place at the Jean Monnet House in Bazoches-sur-Guyonne (France), 45 kilometres west of Paris. The venue is a farmhouse where Jean Monnet – one of the EU’s founding figures – resided and developed his visions of European unity.
