Duration: 4 days


Topic of the program “A new Climate Law for Europe”


The course consists of:

  • 10 online webinars: 03 – 16 November 2022
  • Online simulation:  21 – 24 November 2022


The Virtual Model EU is a fully remote role-playing simulation of European politics that provides its participants with an in-depth understanding of the mechanics of the European Parliament’s and the European Council’s role and functioning.

It is organized by the Eastwest European Institute (EWEI) with the support of the Associazioni Diplomatici, two Italian organizations specializing in learning-by-doing training in the field of international politics.




The Virtual Model EU 2022 will be based on the results of the Conference on the Future of Europe, and more precisely will focus on Climate Change. The students will take over the roles of the members of the European Parliament or the ministers of the Council of the European Union and will have to decide on how to amend the Climate law according to the results of the Conference on the Future of Europe.

In order to reach an interinstitutional agreement on the amendment proposals for the Climate Law, the participants will have to negotiate like real members of the European Parliament or real ministers of the member states. The article which shall be modified is the 4°, paragraphs 1, 3, 4, and 5. Each group has to propose up to 3 amendments. The amendments will be firstly discussed by the European Parliament and then by the Council. If the vote is successful, the new text of the Climate Law will be considered the outcome of the simulation.

This topical theme will be able to develop an up-to-date understanding of the internal dynamics of the European institutions and of the current challenges the European Union is facing.

EWEI will also make available its specially designed online training platform to the participants, with access to training and background materials to support their preparation. While all the remote activities are guaranteed by the use of Zoom.
