We are more than happy to introduce our new-elected Board Members at the General Assembly we hold at the end of June in Madrid, Spain: Adrian Barbaroș (nominated by CNE), Bicca Olin (nominated by FSS and SAKKI) and Lucija Karnelutti (nominated by DOS). They will continue fighting for school students’ rights up till 2021, together with Edvardas and Giuseppe, who were elected at the GA in 2018. 

The end of July found us at the first Board Meeting of the 2018-2019 mandate. The meeting took place between the 27th and the 31st of July 2019 in Brussels, Belgium. Not only were the following objectives of the organisation defined, but the portfolios were also divided. Also, our new-elected Board Members introduced to our Secretariat, partners and external experts. Moreover, creating Internal Regulation within Board and accelerating team collaboration represent the centre of our attention.

As for the next objectives of the organisation, we plan on reinforcing our members organisation, on creating projects, campaigns that are dedicated to the needs of the European school students.

At the end of our Board Meeting, along with our partners ESU- European Students’ Union and Lifelong Learning Platform, we held our annual reception Summer toast to Education, an event where we shared the same values and celebrated together with some different organisations the power of collaboration and partnership. 

Together, we strive for a better educational system, for inclusive schools and quality teaching for all European school students.
