It could be the Parlement Européen des Jeunes, Pat: http://www.pejfrance.org, also available in English as the European Youth Parliament: https://eyp.org/

It could be that, thanks FFS.
But as far as remember it was on a more local scale. ie at Departmental level.

Not sure which elections you mean, Pat.
Could be these (conseil académique et conseil national):

Thanks - both links are probably what I'm looking for.
I used to buy La Depeche and they sometimes had reports of these debates and elections in local lycees. I think they're an excellent idea.
Following a discussion on a UK based forum about how little the average UK person knows about parl. procedure, and politics in general, public education is very much needed here.
A whole new group of teenagers will be able to vote in the coming GE, but how much do they know?
