Students connect with the European Parliament on 11 April 2024

New European Parliament elections will take place from 6 to 9 June 2024. This is the moment to elect representatives to the European Parliament in Brussels for the next five years. In preparation for these elections, the Election Festival #MBOHBO stem/vote will take place on Thursday 11 April at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. This is an event for students, by students. Of course, everyone is welcome!

As a student, do you want to learn more about the European Union? Or would you like to hear from MEPs themselves what they can do for young people at European level? If yes, come to the election festival #MBOHBO stem/vote.

Interesting workshops will be organised. Picture yourself as a real Member of the European Parlement (MEP) during the European Parliament Simulator workshop! Or learn more about the challenges of contemporary Europe during the workshop The EU's Challenging Neighbourhood.
