When we heard about Project EurHope, an initiative put together by five current International Relations & Global Politics students, we were very eager to invite them for a virtual aperitivo to find out more. While all of our podcasts have a global outlook, this one really takes the cake: in this episode we are joined by Adriana, Irene, Miriam, Bashir, Dario, and their professor, Irene Caratelli, zooming in from various corners of the world to discuss EurHope. On top of dealing with their studies being interrupted by lockdown, completing their semesters via remote learning, and preparing for their finals, these students have launched both a project and a petition that seek to push for coordinated action by EU states to tackle issues that affect them all, most pressingly Covid-19, while also opening up constructive dialogue regarding the EU among young people. We were blown away by our students' vision and dedication, and we are sure that you will be too - so be sure to tune in.
