The Future of the European Union - European Student Conference

Friday, February 13, 2015 (All day) to Saturday, February 14, 2015 (All day)

The European Student Conference is a unique opportunity to work alongside globally minded thinkers, current decision makers, and renowned academics to analyze the role of the EU and its relationship to the United States. Participants will work in small groups led by EU policy makers and professors to develop policy recommendations, seek solutions to the EU’s problems, and think about how to foster greater US-EU relations. The conference merges academic discussion with real-world interaction—by the end of the conference, delegates will create proposals and strategies and will found a US-based student thinktank for EU affairs.

On February 21, the Colorado Council for Economic Education will be hosting an educator outreach workshop about comparison of the social safety net offered in U.S. and various EU member states. Economic security is a goal in any society. But the social safety net tends to be broader and deeper in the EU than in the US. This class offers a comparison of US and EU approaches to socio-economic welfare with a political scientist and an economist. All grade levels welcome; especially beneficial for teachers of comparative economics, government/civics, US/European geography, European history.
