EUTOPIA launches the Ideas Club and opens the call for two UPF students
The Ideas Club will be a student debate space where discussions on topics of European interest will take place during various meetings over the course of a four-year project
The EUTOPIA Alliance is launching the Ideas Club, a multilingual debate platform aimed at students to increase awareness of European values through knowledge and awareness of intercultural differences. The project will involve the participation of around twenty students from the various universities that participate in the Alliance, as well as the global partners from outside of Europe collaborating with EUTOPIA.
The Ideas Club will meet twice a year, both in-person and online, and each session will produce results in the form of reports, manifestos, or audiovisual content containing the conclusions of the debates. The first of these meetings will take place on October 12th at the Université Cergy in Paris. Two UPF students will attend, that have been selected through a competitive call.
The main discussion topics that have been identified include debates on Nation, diversity, and European identity; Circular economy in Europe; Conflict, peace, and diplomacy in Europe; Sustainability and natural resources on the old continent, The roots of Europe; What does it mean to be European?; among others. The project will culminate in the summer of 2026 with the celebration of an EUTOPIA Summer School where the outcomes of the Ideas Club will be collected.
The deadline for submitting applications was September 15th.
