Keeping up the EU spirit at SZU


Six SZU students were honoured to receive a certificate from the European Parliament for their enthusiastic participation in Youth Parliament activities.

The EU events they took part in during the 2021/22 school year were characterised by networking, presenting ideas on issues like the environment, peace, digitalisation, business and the economy, as well as debating in person and virtually, and visiting other countries such as Germany, Bulgaria and France – all good training in the 21st century skills that our students will need in their working lives. They are looking forward to another year of EU Parliament events and encouraging more of their fellow students to get involved.

A big thank you to our Senior EU Ambassador Vincent Englitsch (5AHWII), who has put so much effort into the school’s Youth Parliament work over the past four years, and won’t be able to take part this year because he is studying for his Matura exams. He is handing over his role to Marco Spellas (4AHITN) and Philipp Recknagel (4BHITN), who are currently Junior Ambassadors and will do their very best to continue raising awareness of the EU and its fundamental values at SZU.
