Call for students! Focus Discussions on the perception of the European Union

Join our European Breakfast or Lunch Discussion and talk the EU through!

We often hear that “Brussels is too far away” from the EU citizens – but is it? What does the EU mean to you? We are looking for young people who study in Germany to join focus group discussions and tell us what they think of the European Union!

Within the EUact project, we aim to encourage active engagement of citizens in the decision-making process and offer bottom-up recommendations to EU policymakers by conducting focus group interviews, organising public debates as well as drafting policies and practical solutions with young leaders’ involvement.


If you are a student in Germany*, we want your opinions!

Tell us what you think about the notion of EU citizenship, the meaning of active citizen engagement, your hopes and concerns – both positive and negative. Your opinions will be anonymised and feed into a general report reflecting the views of young people in Germany on European issues that will be presented and hand-delivered to relevant EU policymakers in Brussels in the fall of 2019.


Tell us what you think during our:


European Breakfast | discussion in German
European Lunch | discussion in English

on 12 November, 2018
at Das Progressive Zentrum | Werftstr. 3, 10557 Berlin
(close to Berlin Central Station)

REGISTER HERE by 4 November, 2018.


* No travel costs reimbursement possible.

Partners of the EUact project.



This call is part of a project “EP Elections and Beyond: Active Participation of EU citizens at All Levels”.

EUact is co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union
