Students become parliamentarians and discover the links between science and politics through the European Student Parliament (EUSP) project. In 2018 school students from across Europe debate the future of mobility in Toulouse in the period from 7 to 9 July 2018. In conjunction with the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) in Toulouse, which hosted the Parliament, around 70 students from 10 European countries (Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Serbia and Switzerland) exchanged ideas with scientists.
After three days of discussion and debate on ‘The Future of Mobility’ students handed over their resolutions to Carlos Moedas, EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation. The plenary chamber of the Conseil Départemental de la Haute Garonne provided the perfect atmosphere for the debate. 70 high school students from 10 countries across Europe took part in the European Student Parliament, speaking to scientists in expert hearings and experiencing the democratic process in a simulated parliament.
Forum Democrit is coordinating the EUSP project in Bulgaria.
