Fostering strong cultural ties through promoting the education ecosystem in India is the top priority for the European Union, as part of which Chargé d’affaires of the Lithuanian Embassy to India Žymantas Mozūraitis visited one of the most reputed schools in Delhi/NCR- Lotus Valley International School Noida under the project “EU Goes to School” last fortnight.
“Chargé d’affaires of Lithuanian Embassy to India Žymantas Mozūraitis paid a visit to Lotus Valley International School Noida to spread the word about the EU and Lithuania under the project “EU Goes to School”. The most active students were awarded medals, also collaborations with schools in Lithuania were discussed,” said social media handle of the embassy.
There was high enthusiasm among the students for the event. As part of this initiative diplomats and senior staff from various Member States visit schools in the National Capital Region, New Delhi to give presentations on the EU and their respective countries.
The aim of the project is to connect with the youth and foster stronger India-EU relations. This initiative is being organised by the Delegation of the European Union to India, in collaboration with The WISE Foundation and EU Member State diplomatic missions.
“India is a strategic partner for the EU and the two regions are the world’s largest democracies. The overall objective of the program is to bring the EU and its Member States closer to young people in India and to raise the curiosity of young Indian minds about the EU and its Member States. The EU is keen to reach out to young people in India and help enhance their knowledge of the world around them, including the rich and diverse history and cultures of Europe,” said the WISE Foundation website.
EU is one of the most promising destinations for Indian students. EU and its member states have made considerable progress in enhancing cooperation in the education sector with India in the past decade.
