The Eulections’19 roadshow continued online with Universidade dos Açores on December 11, 2020. The university students joined the discussion about the future scenarios for the EU. For some, the Union needs to consolidate its institutions and coordination processes to respond to challenges, as for others it needs to change to “do much more together”. Recognizing Brexit and the initial COVID19 pandemic response as pivotal moments that underscore the need to make improvements to the European project, students also recognized the importance of the EU in promoting better living conditions in the poorer regions of the continent. They’ve also stated the importance of European values and the fight against extreme nationalist ideas to keep united in diversity.

As for citizens’ role in shaping the EU’s future, students emphasized the importance of improving the Union’s communication with citizens, especially from peripherical regions, and find ways to engage europeans in the debate.
