Ideas Club is back for its second edition in Venice

After a first edition edition in October 2023, EUTOPIA launches the second edition of the “Ideas Club”, a student-led debate program to raise awareness of European values through knowledge and awareness about intercultural differences, transcending local and regional and national identity-pegs, with the objective of developing and training European identity and inclusive citizenship competence and skills through knowledge about values, human rights, models of representation and participation. 

The Ideas Club meets twice a year, and each session will produce results in the form of reports, manifestos, or audiovisual material with the conclusions of the debates. The upcoming meeting will take place on April 23 and 24, 2024 at Ca’Foscari University in Venice. The tangible proposals will be made public during the upcoming EUTOPIA Day on May 13th, 2024. 

The second edition of the Ideas Club, organised in cooperation with the EUSTT (Eutopia Students Think Tank), will delve around a core concern of our Century: “Climate Change Challenges”. The Ideas Club project will culminate in the summer of 2026 with the celebration of a EUTOPIA Summer School where the outcomes of the different meetings held over these years will be collected.
