In need of some cultural stimulation during the long and slow summer months? EUTOPIA has got you covered!

EUTOPIA, that’s six different regions in six different countries of different sizes, different historical backgrounds, different demographics, and different cultural heritage, both material and intangible. Rather than viewing our numerous differences as obstacles, the EUTOPIA alliance chooses to celebrate them, to see the richness they represent. Or, in the words of one of our students, illustrated in her winning design for the EUTOPIA tote bag design competition: “together we thrive”. 

With #EUTOPIACultureClub, members of the EUTOPIA community share their national must-reads, favorite compatriot artists, songs, artwork, films, theatre performances, recipes for national dishes, talk about their favorite national holiday or tradition, … Keep an eye on our socials this summer, because a steady stream of cultural tips is coming your way!

Student Conferences: a formative experience for engaged students

EUTOPIA is a student-empowering alliance and our students took the center stage during their own conferences!
EUTOPIA is a student-centered and student empowering alliance. Through bodies like the Student Forum, the Student Council, the Student Think Tank, EUTOPIA aims to allow students a voice in their university’s governance.

More than that, one of EUTOPIA’s goals is to let students meet and work together, and make them responsible of projects of their own. Two prime examples of this are the BeEUTOPIAn, and the SDG in the Post-pandemic Era student conferences that took place in April and June, respectively.

Please find through the link below testimonials of students on their experience during these two conferences. Organizing the conferences has been a very formative experience for all students, let's meet them!
