More student participants from last month's EU Activism Seminar have documented their impressions and takeaways from the conference that B'nai B'rith International and B'nai B'rith Europe hosted and co-sponsored.
Read excerpts from their reflections via two postings (here and here) for The College of New Jersey, as well as a Spotify playlist compiled from the seminar participants by the EUJS.
We delved into pressing issues like human rights, terrorism, access to education, and Anti-Semitism. After experiencing such an impressive blend of international culture in Brussels I’m inspired to keep seeking out more diversity both here in Spain and back at TCNJ.
This made me realize how accessible and real these influential foreign officials can be, given some personal drive and a few connections. In what felt like a matter of minutes I went from TCNJ, to Spain, to Brussels, to speaking in a foreign language with a high-level European government official about an issue I’m passionate about.
