Students following the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Module course entitled Communicating the EU to the students through the simulation games simulated online meetings of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union over the European Climate Law proposed by the European Commission.
During the first reading, students divided into political groups in the European Parliament examined the proposed law and made amendments to it.
In their turn, the students simulating the Council meeting held discussions over the proposed law. Chaired by the Portuguese Presidency, the meeting of the Council was driven by the motto of the Presidency: "Time to deliver: a fair, green, and digital recovery". Trying to convince other member-states to support their position and attempting to build informal alliances, the Ministers of the Environment failed to agree on the law both in the first and second readings.
Following the reconciliation meeting, the European Parliament and the Council agreed on adopting the European Climate Law.
