|31 May 2023
The European Student Assembly 2023 kicks off today at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. ESA will be held from 31st May to 2nd June with the main goal of gathering students from most European University Alliances to debate current issues, draft political recommendations for the future of Europe and advocate them among stakeholders and decision-makers.
The 210 student participants have been selected out of more than 1400 applications for their engagement and motivation. They come from 28 different countries, 40 Alliances and 144 universities. Aleksandra Kabala, a student at the University of Wroclaw, is representing the Arqus Alliance in this major event, one of the flagship initiatives of the European University Community (EUC). She will be participating in Panel 8, “Cities of the future. How could sustainable cities contribute to European autonomy and people’s welfare?”, with the issue of sustainability at the centre of the discussion. Besides, Aleksandra will cover the event on the Arqus Instagram account, sharing her experience with our followers.
The participants of the ESA 2023 will produce a collection of recommendations on 10 debating topics, each one assigned to a different Panel:
Each thematic group will produce 6 to 10 Policy Proposals that answer the key challenges and questions discussed in each of the Panels.
The general document, gathering around 80 Policy Proposals, will be submitted to European Union institutions, national policymakers, MEPs and other stakeholders as the Recommendations of the European Student Assembly.
