TEPSA organised a student contest for students in the TEPSA network and beyond, targeting in particular undergraduate and graduate students.
Students were asked how “solidarity” should be defined in the EU and to discuss on potential and concrete forms of solidarity that can be put in place between EU citizens and EU Member States. Participation was based on the submission of an essay or policy brief addressing the aforementioned topic.
The winners of the contest participated in EU@Work seminars, trainings organised by TEPSA in November and December 2018 providing young students with first-hand insights on the functioning of the EU through lectures by leading academics and visits to EU institutions.
