Regional Session Vienna 2023 took place

Under the motto “PeacEfUl Collaboration – a European Union without Boundaries”, 90 young people from Austria and Europe gathered for the Regional Session Vienna 2023 from 16 to 19 February 2023. Within various thematic fields, they discussed perspectives of European policy-making that aim to promote an inclusive and prosperous network of states.

The Teambuilding and Committee Work days of the Session took place at the Hans-Mandl-Berufsschule located in Viennas 12th district and the General Assembly was hosted at the Kuppelsaal of the TU Wien the Technical University of Vienna. We are very thankful to have collaborated with such generous institutions. 

Another highlight of the session was undoubtedly the Panel Talk which took place on Friday 17 February at the Juridicum Vienna and included four experts who discussed the topic of “Media as the fourth pillar of democracy”. The Q&A round offered participants the chance to converse directly with our panel and ask all their most burning questions. Thank you to Dr Klaus Unterberger (ORF), Dr Wolfgang Renner (Wiener Zeitung), Julia Partheymüller (Professor for Poltical Science at the University of Vienna) and Lukas Burnar (Redaktion Andererseits) for taking part in the event and for sharing their views with us. 

Overall the session was a great success, introducing a new generation of students to our network and giving many first-time Officials the chance to develop their skills as Chairpersons, Media Team Members, Jury Members of Organisers. 

We want to thank each and every person who invested their time and effort into making the Regional Session Vienna 2023 a reality and especially our Head-Organiser Todor Lankov, his Organising Team and the Board Members responsible for the event, Lisa Weinberger and Elena Szegedi!
