Students from all over Europe and beyond are invited to participate at the 16th International Student Congress held on the initiative of "Students for Europe" (SFE). This year's congress will be featuring the topic “Opportunity? Challenge? Risk? - It's up to (E)U!” and will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on October 7-10, 2010.
The congress brings together up to 120 students from all European countries to discuss European issues interdisciplinary and on a European level with notable representatives from economy, politics and society. It is an outstanding possibility to get in touch with people from all over Europe, broaden one own‘s horizon by interesting and different positions being discussed, and learn about the culture and history of SFE's host country.
Our congresses are based on the idea of European integration achieved by exchange of opinions and cultures. Our participants are aware of the upcoming challenges of peacekeeping in an international environment, where national interests interfere with international ones, resources are limited and so far trusted systems, as only happened in the financial crisis, might collapse all of a sudden. We believe that Europe will only survive in long term if all countries work together and at least try to understand the fears and changes faced by other members of the EU and its citizens. Interaction, knowledge and compromises will be the key to understand other European nations and their culture in order to be able to form a corporate identity.
This year congress is supported by Mr Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission. Beside interesting discussions there will also be a cultural and evening program, such as a guided city tour, a gala dinner and a Goodbye party.
