The EU institutions poster is a teaching aid developed as part of our HYS project aiming at helping learners and educators to get a quicker grip on how the EU works from the institutions perspective.

Technical instructions

The 1 page Pdf can be used for printing the poster on a plotter (a printer for large paper). Some educational institutions have one. Or the Pdf can be given to a professional print shop.

The "9 pages A4" Pdf can be printed on an ordinary office printer (paper size A4). The 9 pages must then be cut and glued. For cutting use a knife and a metal ruler. Remove two of the four side strips so that you can glue the sheets seamlessly. There are cut marks on the paper.

The EU legislation diagram shows a flow chart of typical legislation in the EU, concretely the so-called "Ordinary Legislation Process". The chart was initially created in order to support "The Law Game", an educational game developed by Coop SAPSE in Korsika. It was developed after we found various other created by thirds parties not suitable. The diagram can be useful also for many other purposes - everywhere where the question is: How does a thing become law in th EU?

The Ordinary Legislation Procedure is only one of multiple, but it is the most frequently applied one.

More information EU legislation procedures can be found on the EUs own websites:


The EU Legislation Diagram is available in English and a number of other languages.

We provide two different types of Pdf files:

  1. Single page; this is set in approximately A3 paper but it can be printed also smaller, or - better - larger (if you have a plotter), as most of its elements are vector graphics and don't lose precision when enlarging
  2. The poster split into 4 pages, with overlaps for glueing. This allows you to print the file on an ordinary office printer (A4 sized paper), and then cut and glue together the 4 pages to get a reasonably sized poster that you can stick to the wall.
