GenD Policy Recommendations
The Generation d-Liberation project is an initiative in the framework of the European Parliament DG COMM work for the Conference on the Future of Europe. It run since April 2021 until June 2022 and its main aim is to give tools to young people, and particularly school students - both in general and VET education - to be able to discuss the future of Europe and the role they want to play in it, with specific regards to the fields of: addressing climate change, the right to quality education, jobs for young people, mental health and minority rights and inclusion. This was done both through facilitated deliberations in different European countries (Italy, Belgium, France, Germany, Romania, Hungary, Ireland) as well as by any young person who receives the methodology that the project will develop. All ideas were collected online and served as a basis for recommendations to members of the European Parliament who will represent the student perspective on the Conference on the Future of Europe. Partners all have a great deal of experience, either working as a student representation body or in the domain of democracy, participation and deliberation.

Mind Our Education: Global Call For Action 17th of November
The pressure to succeed academically and have your entire self-worth denoted by grades and numbers; the pressure to outperform your peers and be the very best, juggling the rest of your life to fit into this race; the pressure and expectation that family and personal issues should not be facilitated and understood by the formal education system. This is the situation where students find themselves in education systems all over the world. In this highly stressful environment, and with the world changing everyday, the pressure that students face often threatens their mental health, which concretely impacts on their potential to fully exercise their right to education. Towards the International Students’ Day OBESSU and ESU call on students from all over the world to unite in calling to guarantee a healthy environment for all students!
