ZAGREB, October 1, 2018 – The sixth edition of the international conference called Model European Union Zagreb, during which 62 young Europeans will take part in an annual simulation of the work of EU institutions, started in Zagreb on Monday.

“Model European Union Zagreb is an international educational conference which gathers the most enthusiastic young people from around the world. It is designed as a combination of the simulation of the decision-making procedure of the EU institutions (the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union), workshops and structural dialogues with decision makers on the current issues,” according to a statement issued by the organisers of the event that will run through October 6.

The conference is annually organised by a group of highly motivated students, whose aim is to spread the knowledge about the EU institutions among their peers and prepare them for the EU of tomorrow. In previous editions, activities of the conference had a direct impact on more than 300 students and young professionals on their professional and personal development. The conference has received the support from many European and Croatian institutions and the relevance of the project was recognised by the Agency for Mobility and the EU Programs so this will be the third year in a row that the project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ program.

The conference is held under the auspices of the European Parliament, the Croatian Parliament Speaker, the Croatian Foreign and European Affairs Ministry, Croatian MEPs Davorka Šuica and Davor Škrlec, the Zagreb University’s Faculty of Political Sciences and Faculty of Economics and the Institute for the Development and International Relations.
