European Student Parliament is a project initiated by Wissenschaft im Dialog from Berlin with the goal to strengthen dialogue between high school students and scientific researchers in Europe. The student’s parliament, organized by the Center for the Promotion of Science, was held in November 2013, at the National Parliament of the Republic of Serbia. This project was implemented in 17 European countries, with the financial support provided by the Robert Bosch Foundation.

Within three days, students learned about parliamentary processes of decision making through simulation of the parliament work. Discussing different scientific aspects of the main topic “Future of our city”, high school students prepared the final parliamentary debate through teamwork and expert debates. Students have actively been working three days on finding solutions for each topic in five groups.

From approximately 2000 students involved in the national parliaments, 100 winners were invited to take part at the final EU Student Parliament, realized in the framework of the conference Euroscience Open Forum Conference (ESOF) in Copenhagen in 2014. The selected representatives of Serbia and the national winners for 2013/14 are Sofija Jovanovic, Jelena Glisic, Bogdan Radicevic, Lazar Bulic and Vanja Godjevac.
