For five days in October, VRG Djursholm was the home to the 10th annual MEP BSR (Model European Parliament Baltic Sea Region) meeting. More than sixty students and ten teachers from Poland, Russia, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, and Finland traveled to Sweden and stayed here in our community with our families.
The schedule for the conference included two days of intense committee work where each committee consisting of representatives from each country wrote and revised and finalized a resolution to be presented to the General Assembly in open debate on the final day. There were also team building and culture events included.
In addition to increased knowledge about these important national and European issues, many new friendships were formed. Next MEP session is in Luxembourg, we can’t wait.
*Thanks to our students who shared their school for four days, our wonderfully supportive host families who showed real Swedish hospitality, to our staff who made many different things work at the same time, and, especially, to Dan Gustafsson – for your unyielding enthusiasm and effort to make learning meaningful for all of our students.
