Two OSFC students, Mariam Inayat and Christopher Marland, are among a group of young people from across the country who successfully applied to attend the European Youth Event in Strasbourg from 8-11 May. This group of 18-25 year olds will be representing the UK at the event, where they will be joined by young people from all over Europe.
Held in the EU Parliament, the Youth Forum will involve debates, workshops and discussions on European Values, Youth Democracy, Digital Media, Youth Unemployment and Sustainability along with a chance for the group to socialise, explore the city and, of course, revise.
Richard Lee, Associate Director, said:
‘The College is extremely proud that Mariam and Chris have been selected for the European Youth Event. It’s brilliant that they will be representing the UK in Strasbourg and, knowing both of them, I am sure they will make their voices heard! I’m certain the Forum will also enable them to enhance their political skills and knowledge, and will prepare them well with regard to their future aspirations. I’m confident that this is just the start of their political careers.’
