European citizenship goes beyond borders. In fact, European citizenship is unique because ideals such as peace, prosperity, and equality are in focus.

In the 21st century, active European citizenship necessitate engagement with complex global challenges such as migration, democracy, trust in science, climate change and inequality.

Contemporary universities can play a key role in promoting European citizenship by developing innovative, interdisciplinary, challenge-based, and student-led pedagogies that empower students to reframe, reflect upon and address the global and societal challenges we face today.
