What is EuroEnviro?
The EuroEnviro student symposium was created in 1995 in Born, Germany. Originally known as BiB, Born-in-Born, it was later to be renamed EuroEnviro. The aim was to exchange opinions with other students on environmental sciences and ecopolitical issues. Over the years the focus has expanded from mainly environmental issues to also include social and economic sustainability. EuroEnviro has no lasting organisation behind it. It is a non-profit event, dependant on the work of volunteers. At the end of each symposium, a new group of organisers is chosen from among the attendees. This has led to a natural progression and variation of ideas, perspectives and themes – each symposium is unique, with little in common but a shared concept and an overarching focus on sustainability. The symposium has taken place in many countries throughout the European continent. Below you can see the brief history of EuroEnviro. It has been organized 22 times in 19 European countries since 1995.
Our team is proudly devoted to green and sustainable development, our focus is on sustainability in urban environment and in tourism industry. With designing and organizing projects in this field, we try to learn as much as possible and also spread our knowledge and experiences with others to enhance our common development. The final goal of this 6-day symposium is to get a deeper understanding of how different aspects of these problems relate to each other and furthermore to develop pragmatic and innovative solutions.
