Participation of our students in the European Student Parliament on Science

The European Student Parliament on Science is organised by the initiative of the Science Community of Germany «Science in Dialogue» («Wissenschaft im Dialog»). This year’s subject was «The future of mobility» and the Parliament was realised in collaboration with Euroscience Open Forum – ESOF, in Toulouse, France (9-14/7/2018).

Three of Greece representatives in the European Student Parliament on Science were the students of our school 1. Drakoulakou Georgia, 2. Avgerinou Aikaterini, 3. Protonotariou Eleni that were selected in March 2018 with the appropriate procedure.

and a text by the student Aikaterini Avgerinou on her experience from her participation in the European Student Parliament:

«When starting the B’ High School Class, I took advantage of the opportunity I was offered by my school to participate in after-school clubs among which I also chose the «European Paths in Sciences». My choice was made on the basis of the club content and its interesting activities. The best part of these activities was the participation in the Greek Student Parliament on Science, which was held in Ellinogermaniki Agogi in April 2018. That participation was for us the ticket for our presence in the European Student Parliament on Science, in Toulouse, France in July 2018, on the subject of «The future of mobility». This activity was a unique experience. We had the chance to learn the decision-making procedures of the European Parliament and afterwards to suggest and vote for our own ideas according to these procedures. At the same time, we attended speeches by specialised scientists on the subject under discussion, we met young people from all over Europe and got to know the hospitality of a French university. Our stay in Toulouse was beyond any expectation on all levels. This journey, as a capstone of this after-school club for this school year, wouldn’t have been realised without the encouragement and the scientific support of the teacher in charge of the club Ms. Panagiota Argyri, whom I deeply thank.»
