On Monday 1 July our school’s Erasmus+ HOPE Club participated in a public conference with the recently elected six MEPs from Luxembourg Charles Goerens, Christophe Hansen. Tilly Metz, Monica Semedo, Isabel Wiseler-Santo a Nicolas Schmit. During the roundtable discussion, the students could share their concerns and ideas with the MEPs on three important issues: 1) Climate change, 2) Youth participation and 3) The impact of digitalisation on society.
Friday 26th, HOPE-Club welcomed Luxembourgish member of the European Parliament (MEP) Christophe Hansen to discuss current topics concerning the European Union, such as climate change, Brexit, EU-scepticism and Article 13 controversy.
Mr Hansen joined the European Parliament in 2018. He was a political adviser of Astrid Lulling from 2007-2014 and he is now member of CSV and the European People's Party.
Since 2014, LMRL students have been travelling to international MUN (Model United Nation) conferences – now our HOPE club is organising the first MUN in Luxembourg: LuxMUN 2018 on the topic “Hope for Peace”.
