European Student Assembly
The European Universities Community launched the second edition of the European Student Assembly.
From March to May 2023, the selected students will work remotely to deepen their understanding of a chosen topic and produce a collection of recommendations before meeting with their peers for a 3-day event in Strasbourg from 31 May to 2 June to propose concrete solutions.
The call for applications closed on 4 December 2022. Selected students will have their travel costs from European countries covered by CIVICA.
As part of EUC, the inaugural session of the European Student Assembly brought together 275 student representatives from the European University Alliances for a conference in Strasbourg on 3-4 March 2022.
CIVICA was represented at the Assembly by 26 students and PhDs from all alliance members.
Together, students discussed some of the more complex challenges that the EU faces today to eventually make recommendations to European policy makers.
