Who can participate in a EuroEnviro?

EuroEnviro welcomes participants from all countries and disciplines. To participate, you have to be a university student or a recent graduate. You should be involved in sustainability issues either as a part of your studies or through free-time activities – or want to become involved. You can be either a bachelor, master or PhD student – what is important is your motivation to learn and contribute. We encourage everyone interested in the symposium to apply- irrespective of gender, eventual disabilities, sexual orientation, political affiliation, ethnic origin, social background or any other factor.

Are students from outside Europe also allowed to participate?

We will consider applicants from outside of Europe. However, students from European universities will be given priority in the application process if the number of applicants is greater than the number of available places.

Is there a formal organisation behind the EuroEnviro network?

EuroEnviro has no lasting organisation behind it. The symposium is organised by a different group of students in a different country every year; a new host is elected from among the participants at the end of each symposium. The idea of EuroEnviro is passed on through the experience of organizers who have participated before, and its continuum of survival is dependent on their willingness to work hard to provide the experience to a new generation of attendees.

What is included in the program?

The EuroEnviro symposium lasts for a full week, featuring a high-level academic program, complemented with thematic workshops and excursions. In addition, there is an extensive social program, allowing the participants to get to know each other and network.

How much does it cost?

The participation fee of 200€ includes food, accommodation, academic program, social program and transportation to and from venues. And 80€ if you are a student at the University of Gothenburg or Chalmers and reside in Gothenburg..

What are the required language skills?

The symposium will be held in English. A good understanding of English will, therefore, be needed. Perfect fluency is not expected from the participants, but you should have a good enough understanding to be able to follow and participate actively.

Can I get ECTS study credits from participating?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee this. We advise you to consult your home university on whether they can assign you credit points for attending the program or not. We will, however, provide you with an official certificate of participation detailing the hours of academic work included.

How and when can I apply?

The applications open on 21st January 2019 and close on 1st March.
