TCC on European TV

It is a pleasure to announce that the Transylvania Community College 2003 documentary (31 minutes) will be transmitted by the Europe by Satellite (EbS) channel.

21.00 Monday (28.06.2004)
05.00 Tuesday
08.30 Saturday

The documentary can also be downloaded from http://europa.eu.int/comm/ebs/schedule.cfm (after the transmission only) together with a brief summary.

The EbS is like a fair for TV-channels all over Europe, so we expect the "Community College" format to get extra attention by being broadcasted from different channels all over Europe in near future.

To those of ACC Bulletin readers interested in common European Education within the Community College format, please use the opportunity to make your local TV-stations aware of the transmission from EbS.

When ACC is working for the development of a European public sphere and when the main idea of the ACC is that a unique way of promoting this objective is through establishing Community Colleges on a common European level, we hope one more time to have proved how to make sense of the European integration process.

By regularly establishing trans-national debates about issues of common character we see our practice expressed in the EU-Commissions communication on future education programmes as "CITIZENSHIP IN ACTION".
