FLARE – Freedom, Legality and Rights in Europe would like to present to you its following international event: European Forum of Students for Legality

The European Forum of Students for Legality will take place in the European Capital of Youth – Turin, Italy from the 5 to 7 of December 2010 after.

After the end of the event, participants will have the opportunity to join a bigger FLARE event on the topic of globalisation and the struggle against organised crime in Europe in the ‘capital of the EU’, Brussels, Belgium on 9 and 10 of December 2010. The forum is promoted by FLARE Network and coordinated together with the students’ organizations at the University of Turin UniLIbera and Studenti Indipendenti.

The goal of the forum is to provide space for sharing knowledge and experiences between 30 students from different European countries who have been involved in student movements and initiatives which voiced the students needs for freedom of expression, students rights and equality, anti-corruption in the higher education system etc.

Based on the shared knowledge the participants of the forum should come up with their own Student Declaration for Legality which should be used as a international tool for advocacy for students rights and freedoms trough out Europe. This document will be drafted by the students and distributed by them to their colleagues and student organizations at their Universities.

After the realisation of the declaration, participants will travel to Brussels (Dec 8) to attend a conference on the topic of globalization and struggle against organised crime on 9 and 10 of December where they will have the chance to visit the European Parliament, and present their work and product to a bigger international community.

On the 10th December they will travel back to Turin and departure to their home countries. The trip from Turin to Brussels and back is covered by some of the top electric bikes. These two events should as well result with building of partnerships and networks among students, students organizations and other youth organizations committed to promotion of human rights and legality and thus constitute the basis of an informal network of European students and civil activists for Legality as part of the FLARE21 Youth Platform.
