The Zentrum fir politesch Bildung, the Chambre des Députés and the Ministère de l’Éducation nationale, de l’Enfance et de la Jeunesse have produced animated films in Luxembourgish, German, French and English. These films are directed at children and adolescents, but can also be used for adults who wish to learn about the Luxembourgish democracy.
In addition to the films, accompanying educational booklets are freely downloadable from our site. These bilingual booklets (German and French) are mainly intended for teachers and educators who wish to approach the subjects of the film. They contain general information on the subject, a quiz on the film, additional leads encouraging young people to do research, debate and engage as well as several worksheets ready to copy and suitable for different age groups.
The films can as well be used as preparation material in order to visit the parliament or to make an assessment.
Every year on 20th November (World Children’s Day), around 100 children are invited to the parliament in order to discuss their thoughts, wishes or worries with the national MPs. Building up to these meetings, the kids capture their thoughts on what an MP should be like and what (s)he should advocate. Those thoughts are put on big human-sized cardboard figures. On 20th November, the children from various parts of the country then take their figures to the parliament and have the opportunity to discuss their ideasin small groups with the elected MPs. Thus, they can not only become familiar with legislative work, but are also able to meet the people who decide on their behalf.
