Civic engagement

Civic engagement

Our alliance strives to become an agent of change in European society, defending and promoting European democratic values, and becoming fully networked in the local communities.

We are building an innovative university model that branches out to high schools, minorities, policymakers, businesses, the civil society, the wider public, and other entities outside academia. Civic engagement is at the core of this ambition.
