  • Think we should work together towards more sustainable university campuses?
  • Interested in actively participating in an amazing network of European students?

Then join us for the second Una Europa Student Congress on 20th and 21st October!

Designed and organised by students like you, the Una Europa Student Congress aims to strengthen student networks and highlight sustainability as a major topic for the future of higher education. Your interest and expertise is needed. This is your chance to actively get involved in Una Europa’s goal to build a Sustainable University of the Future. During the congress you will be able to listen and to ask your questions to prominent experts in sustainability from different universities and organisations.

You will get to know the different activities, projects and initiatives that students of Una Europa have worked on and you can take a step forward in creating a truly transnational European campus. This is also a great opportunity to get to know and share your concerns with other students from eight different countries.

Besides having your voice heard, check out these other great reasons to attend:

  • Get to know others students from Berlin, Bologna, Edinburgh, Helsinki, Krakow, Leuven, Madrid, and Paris
  • Exchange ideas, share views and discuss your opinions
  • Create long-term connections through shared student initiatives
  • Interact with Una Europa staff: be curious and ask questions
  • Learn more about Una Europa’s focus area on Sustainability
  • Practice your English and learn about the diversity of European languages (Finnish, French, Dutch, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Swedish)

Participating in the Student Congress and getting involved in the Una Europa student community is also a great way to make important connections and boost your CV.
