We proudly announce that applications for the biggest Model European Union in the world, BEUM, are officially open!
BEUM 2016 aims at gathering 300 prosperous young leaders from all over the world, in an internationally stimulating environment, to deal with alarming issues and work together towards solving the same. Having been deeply concerned with latest European issues, this year’s main topic ”Europe in Crisis” will cover several ongoing issues that overburden European soil, such as border control, Brexit and data protection.
Striving towards engaging young people to have their intake in changing the current situation, we have decided to innovate a traditional Model EU conference, by the motto: ”Have Your say!”. By devoting several workshops, panel discussions with international experts, we will give a chance to young people an opportunity to loudly voice their opinion and try and make a change in the current state Europe is in.
Do you feel Europe could be in a better place than it is now? Do the current issues concern you? Do you feel like you can’t make your opinion matter? Do you also want to take the chance and learn from global companies and their most successful employees through the Global Youth Networking Event and get first-hand lectures on professional development? Then BEUM 2016 is the place you should be.
The conference will be held from October 26th to October 30th at the in the premises of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, simulating 4 institutions. Delegates will work within the European Court of Justice, European Parliament, European Council and the Council of Europe. Besides applying as a delegate, you can apply to take part in the Media team, as a journalist, or take part as a lobbyist.
