Periodic Reporting for period 1 - EUSP (Debate Science! European Student Parliament)
Reporting period: 2018-03-01 to 2018-10-31
The project represents a process of RRI where school students exchange ideas with researchers and policy makers. These stakeholders gain new insights into the views of young Europeans. In addition results are disseminated to experts in the fields of science education and outreach, allowing an exchange of ideas.
Young Europeans attending the parliament develop their interest in science studies and careers through discussions of science in the context of interesting and relevant societal challenges. Students enhance their skills in critical thinking through self-directed learning and debating. They are inspired by meeting role models who use scientific knowledge and methods in their work.
The results of the student parliament is communicated to a broad audience via online and traditional media to stimulate their interest and awareness of science in society. The students’ resolutions are also disseminated to relevant stakeholders, including scientists and policy makers.
