Students' Summary Report on EUSBSR 2017

BUP students': Summary Report on EUSBSR 2017From the report:
"Without the youth panel presented by the BUP representatives, this event would have simply been an event hosted by experts in more of a lecturing manner, whereas including panel discussions, particularly hosted by the youth, forces those attending to acknowledge and consider the views and importance of this demographic as the future of this region. We would encourage the BUP and the EUSBSR organisers to include youth panels each year, and where possible include youth members on more panels to encourage debate rather than present the opinions of one generation to another."
