Light on the Rights Bus Tour
Light on the Rights Bus Tour
|| 2010 ||

The idea behind the Light on the Rights Bus Tour project was to ask those who form the target group of education to have their say and commit themselves. In September 2010, a team of students of different nationalities embarked on a ten thousand kilometres bus trip to talk about school student rights and wider social issues. OBESSU arranged the tour to fulfill this mission and go through 15 countries in 45 days. The young travellers encouraged fellow students to be more interested in political issues that directly affect students and their rights, inspiring them to be more active in the democratic processes.
