December 5-7, 2010 The European Forum of Students for Legality took place in the European Capital of Youth - Turin, Italy from the 5th - 7th December 2010. 30 students from 22 different European countries, representing student and youth organizations had an opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences from different student movements and initiatives. Impressive was the fact that despite the different realities the participants were coming from they agreed upon common principals and commitments and produced the Declaration of the European Students for Legality.
After the Forum the participants had an opportunity to join a bigger FLARE event at the European Parliament in the 'capital of the EU' Brussels for the 9th December - the global Anti-Corruption Day and 10th December - International Human Rights Day. These two events resulted with building international partnerships and networks among the participants and their youth organizations committed to promotion of human rights and legality.
This project is only a beginning of a great journey for Legality! All the participants have already joined the FLARE21 youth platform and have become part of our common international youth legality movement! The declaration is disseminated widely, participants are writing articles in different languages and realizing presentations at their universities and in the communities.
Follow up activities and projects shall be announced soon, so stay tuned with FLARE21!
The forum was supported by the City of Turin and was promoted by FLARE Network in partnership with the students' organizations at the University of Turin UniLIbera and Studenti Indipendenti.
Here are some of the actions by the participants as follow up:
