Global Students’ Voice on the Australian Fire Emergency
The people of Australia are currently facing the effects of the worst environmental crisis in modern history. A place well known for its abundant biodiversity has been engulfed in a cycle of wildfires and as a result, human lives and animal species are in grave danger.
Milos' Journey in OBESSU
14th December 2017, only a day after the job interview I have received a call from Ela offering me the opportunity to join the OBESSU team. Even though we both knew that administrative procedures (work and residence permit given that my country - Serbia is not a part of the EU) will take a while, we decided to go for it and fight until the end (thank you, Ela). After hundreds of papers, emails and calls we made it! In the beginning of April 2018 I joined the Secretariat in Brussels and started a journey as a programme coordinator of Seeds for integration. Or it's better to say a roller coaster.
Global Students' Demands on Refugees and Migrants' Education
Student representatives from OBESSU and ESU gathered in Geneva with other groups of students coming from Africa, North and South America, Asia-Pacific and the Middle-East for the "Global Student Voices: education and migration" forum.
Today is my last day at the OBESSU Secretariat, and it is time to say goodbye to everyone that I have met throughout these 6,5 months. I landed in OBESSUland without a clear image of what this internship was going to be like. I would have never expected the professional dynamism that I was about to experience.
