Are you concerned about the impact of Brexit on Europe?
Do you want to have a say in the future of Franco-British relations?

WORKSHOPS & PITCH PROJECT

• With the guidance from experts, the teams will work to propose a pitch project in the area of their assigned theme.
• The best project will be awarded 2000€ prize by H.E the British Ambassador in order to seed implementation.
PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE (with Débattre en Sorbonne)
• Students will split into teams to engage in parliamentary style debate.
• Teams will be coached in debating and will have an hour to prepare to support or strike down a motion with a Franco-British theme.
The conference will feature a visit of the National Assembly (limited spaces), a start-up masterclass at the Ministry of Finance, a reception at the UK Ambassador's Residence, and keynote speakers including Mary Walsh, Director of Communications of Eurostar.
